Internet & Networking Internet users throughout the world, and particularly in the United States, have long been chastened to hear of South Korea's legendary broadband penetration. The urbanized, technologically-advanced nation has been famous for rolling out ultra high speed network for the majority of its citizens, and many of us have looked on with envy. However, it turns out it's not all good news. An OSNews reader gives us the skinny from the trenches in Korea.

I saw at least one in my vicinity on every ride on the Yamanote line, less often on the Ginza line, and often while walking around.
Multiple people at the 'guesthouse'(hostel, really) I was staying at had them, including all the people that worked there.

That was Tokyo, though.

Been in Tokyo and also in several other cities. Even if there were people with iPhones that I missed, I'm pretty sure the overwhelming majority of people use their typical clamshell cellphones.
