Koreans queue up for Apple iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display launch

“Earlier this month we reported that Apple was about to invade the Korean market and get in Samsung’s face by releasing their hot iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina on December twentieth,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple. “Well, the invasion surprisingly landed today, reports the Korean press.”

Purcher reports, “A Korean report this morning shows that South Korean consumers queued up to purchase Apple’s iPad Air and Retina iPad mini at Frisbee, Apple’s retail outlet in Myeong-dong, central Seoul, on Monday, the first day the new devices hit the stores in the country.”

    1. The Korean people are charming, kind, gentle, beautiful, handsome, clever, ingenious, driven and very success orientated to a fault.
      The fault lies in the fact that their children’s childhood is sacrificed to the alter of success.
      When disparaging Samsung’s ethos, please bare in mind that Samsung is not the people of Korea.

      Samsung is not a Korean person and the owner/s of Samsung maketh not Korea

      1. Samsung’s ethos and business practices are a result of Korean culture and customs.

        The goal of most Koreans is to go to good high school then go to one of the SKY universities then work for a couple like Samsung.

        When people disparage Samsung they are only targeting Samsung. You should keep in mind that an attack on Samsung is not a attack on Korea or Koreans.

  1. Samsung executives just held another “crisis meeting”. That’s so silly. Maybe those people lining up weren’t S. Koreans but foreigners who just happen to live in S. Korea. Hey, I’m just happy some consumers turned out to buy iPads. It shows all hope is not lost.
