iPhone Receives Approval From South Korea Telecommunications Commission

Apple looks ready to expand the iPhone to South Korea after earning approval from the nation’s telecommunications director on Wednesday. The Korea Communications Commission approved the iPhone at its meeting, which means Apple can now sell the device whenever it chooses
The handset is now expected to arrive in a matter of weeks, perhaps before the end of the month.

Service providers KT Corp. and SK Telecom Co. have reportedly been in talks with Apple to sell the iPhone on their networks although none of the parties involved had anything to announce Wednesday.
The government approval for the handset came from a nationwide policy that all devices providing location-based services be subjected to review.
