Korea’s biggest Mobile operator SK Telecom today announced they’d be carrying the iPhone.  There is some question as to whether this is a CDMA phone or a GSM iPhone.

SK Telecom’s Wikipedia entry says that it was the world’s first to commercialize HSDPA in May, 2006.  However Macrumors and others note that the iPhones the models are holding are of the CDMA variety.

Release follows:

  • To begin pre-registrations on March 9 through online and offline retail stores
  • To ensure high quality voice and data services on Korea’s most reliable mobile network, while providing excellent customer care
SK Telecom today announced it will offer iPhone 4 in Korea on March 16 with a range of tariff plans tailored for iPhone customers. 

iPhone 4 is the most innovative phone in the world, featuring Apple’s stunning Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone resulting in super crisp text, images and video, and FaceTime, which makes video calling a reality. iPhone 4 is powered by Apple’s A4 chip and features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HD video recording and a beautiful glass and stainless steel design like no other mobile phone. iPhone 4 comes with iOS 4, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. The revolutionary App Store provides access to more than 350,000 apps including the iMovie app built just for iPhone 4.

“SK Telecom is proud to offer iPhone 4 on the nation’s top network,” said So Jin-Woo, President of Platform Business and Co-CEO of SK Telecom. “Our customers will benefit from flexible tariff plans tailored to their unique usage needs along with a high level of customer care.”

Customers may pre-register for iPhone 4 beginning March 9 at 7:00 a.m. at SK Telecom’s official online store, T Smart Shop (www.tsmartshop.co.kr), or at one of 1,500 authorized SK Telecom T World retail stores.

Full pricing and availability details for iPhone 4 in Korea will be available soon.
