Nokia to Double Presence in Korea(The Korea Times)

Nokia to Double Presence in Korea (The Korea Times): "Phone World’s Giant Capitalizes on Both Sales and Manufacturing

By Cho Jin-seo

Nokia is the world's superpower mobile phone brand, but it has been a nonentity in South Korea. The handsets are not sold here for various reasons.

The situation may improve for the Finnish brand this year. The three mobile service operators ― SK Telecom, KTF and LG Telecom ― have said they are working on plans to sell foreign-made phones such as Nokia, Sony-Ericsson and the Apple iPhone as early as this year. The government's regulations on mobile phones, which have acted as a non-tariff barrier to foreign manufacturers, are likely to be eased as well."
