iPad is selling strongly in South Korea

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.
