Korean KT to accept iPhone 4 pre-orders ahead of Sept. launch

KT, the exclusive distributor of Apple's iPhone, said Sunday it will accept pre-orders for the new iPhone 4 starting Wednesday ahead of its launch here in September.

The country's No. 2 mobile carrier said it will begin taking applications at its website (http://www.phonestore.co.kr) and its 2,900 shops nationwide.

“KT is planning to release the new iPhone 4, which has a completely different look, next month,” said Pyo Hyun-myung, president of mobile business group at KT.

The company, however, did not give an exact release date of the new model.

Earlier this month, the new iPhone 4 received the Korean government's approval required for its domestic release.

But consumers have been left hanging for the launch of the new model since July because Korea was omitted from the July 30 release group with the explanation given being that there was “a delay in receiving government approval.”
