KT to roll out NFC iPhone 4 case

Just last week we reported that SK Telecom in South Korea had plans to introduce an NFC enabled SIM card, which would allow NFC capabilities on just about any phone.

KT Spider concept is a closet Transformer

KT rolls out BRICKS EV-F600 phone

The Nexus One will first be offered via online stores and will then be expanded through retailers the following month. Aside from having […]
