4 Korean Technology Trends
Apple Products is all over the place
It is no more news that an Apple product rules the world of mobile technology. It always amazed me when I’m thinking of it’ staggering development over the past few years. The Asian market has really been transformed from the normal Galapagos Island of quality phones that is made by Korean and Japanese titans to shear Apple domination. Even when comfortable youngsters out there used to hype most of the latest gadgets from Samsung and LG – this time, all every one of them now wants is iEverything – iPads, iPhone, iPod Touch and iTV and even iRubbish :).
The majority of the people in this country love the i-brand more than any other thing now, even they’ve forgotten most of the household brands in the country due to the nice and awesome design of most Apple’s products.
KakaoTalk is killing local SMS providers
The basic and main advantages of these apps are that, those messages are free to send (apart from the cost of browsing the internet), no matter where the receiver is located at in throughout the world. and another great thing there is that, you can send message along with other files such as video, images, high resolution photos and also share your location with friends through group chatting and others.
WhatsApp Rocking the West
WhatsApp is known to be the most popular for the people of the west, but in South Korea, everyone with a smart phone uses the locally made KakaoTalk for their messaging needs.
Presently, the KakaoTalk app is available for download for free on both iPhone and Google Android in Korean, Japanese, and English language.
Superfast internet experience with 4G WiBro Internet Access
This country still holds the record of having a superfast internet connection experience since history. Even while the western part of Korea happily manages from its available modest 3G mobile connections, South Korea on the other hand is still going faster anywhere else with the adoption of its 4G WiBro (or WiMax technology) technology offering speeds up to 40.32 Mbps on the go. And in measurement, that is exactly around 10 xs faster than the 3G and also better than what the most European and American people can get over a fixed line to their personal homes. And the main use of this superfast internet facility is mainly for streaming movies since that is one of the major works of Korean commuters.
How I wish this type of internet access which the people of Korea were enjoying would be available in Africa!
If that happens, I will just be the first person to announce that African countries have started enjoying superfast internet facility like the Koreans. But I know, very soon our own technology will improve to match-up with these Korean technology trends! I believe so
Korea is blessed with lots of benefits and many investors in the US could find the place comely for them if they want to move their business to another great height since the people are now spending more on technology products made both inside and outside the region.
