Android Market to obtain games in South Korea
We all know that South Korea is one nation that is large on gaming – after all, this is a country where you have gaming leagues shown on national TV across different channels, so to see the provision of games hit the Android Market in that part of the world is definitely something. In fact, it has been two years since the first Android-powered device was made available in South […]

Robots to take care of prisons in South Korea
It looks like South Korea is really keen on replacing the country’s workers with robotic counterparts. Earlier this year it was reported that cinema ticket sales would be handled by some robots in the country, and now it looks like robots will be taking over the jobs of prison guards in the future. Some new robots that have been developed in cooperation with the country’s justice ministry will be introduced […]

LG Optimus EX headed to SK Telecom
We just reported that South Korea would be getting the HTC Raider, a handset whose specs seem to rival that of the LG Optimus LTE (LU6200), and now it looks like South Korea will be getting yet another LG device, this time it is the LG Optimus EX (SU880) and it will be making its way onto SK Telecom.

HTC Raider announced
If yesterday’s official announcement of the HTC Rhyme failed to appeal to the male audience (not surprising considering the Rhyme was designed for the female audience in mind), not to worry as HTC has just announced another handset, this time in the form of the HTC Raider which by all accounts appears to be the competitor to the LG Optimus LTE (LU6200).

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.
