According to The Next Web, Apple is beating Samsung tablet sales in South Korea. The interesting part is that South Korea is Samsung's home turf. The iPad holds an estimated 70 to 80% of the South Korean tablet market. Those percentages include both the original iPad and the new iPad 2.

In 2011 through the end of the year, Apple moved 700,000 iPad devices in South Korea. Sales in the first two months of 2012 contributed several hundred thousand additional units sold for Apple allowing it to surpass the 1 million tablets sold mark. The most interesting part of the story, is that the 1 million sold number could be much smaller than the actual number of iPads in the country.

Before the iPad officially went on sell in South Korea, the number of Apple fans would undoubtedly have ordered the tablet through other means. The most popular version of the iPad in South Korea is the Wi-Fi only version.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
