Nokia Enters 3G Market In Korea

Nokia today announced that it is going to start selling 3G mobile devices in Korea. The first device will be the Nokia 6210s, a Symbian S60 powered slide smartphone
The Nokia 6210s is a non-touchscreen, mid-range smartphone with a 3.2 megapixel camera, MP3 player and video playback. It comes with a Flickr uploader out of the box, and a 1GB memory card.

Interesting side note: this may be Nokia’s fist 3G phone sold in Korea, but it’s been manufacturing them in Korea since 1984. Nokia’s factory in Masan has produced nearly 400 million mobile devices since it’s inception.

The Nokia 6210s has a retail price of KRW 396,000 (approx 225 euro) and will be sold through KTF shops and is available now.

From the release:

“The time is now right for Nokia to enter the Korea market” said Colin Giles, Senior Vice President, Greater China, Japan and Korea, Nokia. “With the launch of 3G WCDMA networks and the move by the local operators to more open international standards, Korea has become a more viable market for global players. We look forward to being able to give Korean consumers the chance to choose from a wider range of devices. Our goal is to start slowly with a couple of devices in the first year and build our presence and product portfolio overtime, learning from the market as we go”

Mr Won-Do Lee, Vice President, Handset Strategy Office, KTF said. “We are delighted to welcome Nokia to Korea and to add the Nokia 6210s to our product portfolio. We have worked very closely with Nokia to bring this first product to market. By having the world’s number one phonemaker in our product stable we are giving our customers the ability to choose from a wide variety of 3G devices”
