Apple has continued its pursuit of global smartphone domination and largely succeeded. Roughly 60,000 iPhones were sold in South Korea on the first day they were available. While that hardly comes close to the 1 million iPhone3G S models sold in the United States upon its arrival, only 400,000 smartphones have been sold in South Korea, which has one of the largest mobile subscriber bases in Asia.
