iPhone sales pass 700,000 in South Korea

Over 700,000 iPhones have been sold in South Korea since the device went on sale last November, according to a Korea Herald report. An average of 4,000 per day have been sold since the launch, notes KT, the iPhone’s exclusive carrier in South Korea. It took the handset 27 days to go from 500,000 to 600,000 subscribers but only 25 days to add another 100,000, indicating that sales of the iPhone in Korea are accelerating despite delayed purchases from some consumers waiting for the arrival of a new model this summer. Finally, the report states that the number of Korea-developed iPhone apps is approaching 6,000, from roughly 600 registered developers.
