On Friday, South Korean mobile service provider KT Freetel announced that it’s currently in negotiations with Apple to act as an iPhone carrier.
According to CNN Money, the deal, like Apple’s deal with AT&T in America, would provide a contract in which KT Freetel would be the exclusive wireless carrier for the iPhone in the country.
Apple is in simultaneous negotiations with several cell phone carriers in Europe with plans to extend to these markets in the final months of 2007. The company has stated that it plans to bring the phone to Asian markets sometime in 2008.

  1. hi, i’m writing from the philippines. if apple takes too long to get here officially with the iphone, it may just render this exclusive-carrier business irrelevant. even without the hack just announced by engadget, the iphone has already been hacked here for our two major networks using both the supersim and turbosim method. the iphonesimfree.com hack seems to promise an even simpler solution. apple might as well get these provider arrangements out of the way and come in to asia now with the first-gen iphone.
