KT delays iPhone 4 sales in Korea Apple CEO Steve Jobs has said this weekend that the company must delay its South Korean launch of the iPhone 4, as they still cannot secure government approval in that nation.
"It's going to take just a little bit longer to get government approval there," notes Jobs.

South Korea was one of the eighteen nations that had a July release date for the popular smartphone.

The other 17 still have active July release dates set.

KT, the exclusive carrier for the device in South Korea would not give a time frame for release: "I believe you were confounded by the news that the iPhone 4 launch is delayed. But it does not change (the fact) that the iPhone 4 will be launched."

The nation saw their first iPhone, the 3GS offered in 2009, almost three years after the launch of the original iPhone.

they should demand that apple fixes the antenna problem first.

That might be the delay; maybe South Korea got wind of the problems and said "If it does not work as advertised, you can't sell it here"
