CrunchGear in Korea: Hello from Sunny Seoul

Just landed an hour ago. I’m here with Samsung suckling on the sweet teat of junket whoredom. In all honesty, this should be a pretty cool trip as we’re going to see WiMAX in action, their Mobile TV solutions, and visit KES 2006, which is kind of like CES but Korean. To whet your appetites, I’ve got some pictures of the R-MCA-05-0038 phone – the June? – with built-in DMB TV. The quality is excellent, although I picked up some “teach yourself English” program that featured teens who kept repeating “The wine is weak! Ha ha ha!”

I’m pretty beat tonight, but I’ll have plenty of goodies this week to show you including video and images of hot stuff we’ll never see in the U.S.

If you’re a CG reader in Korea, drop me a line at john at crunchgear dot com. We’ll have an informal meet-up and discuss this whole “Wine is weak” thing.
