KT Corp. (KT, 030200.SE), South Korea's largest fixed-line operator, said Sunday it will roll out Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) iPad tablet computer in Korea some time this month.
"All models of iPad will be officially available via KT this month," the company said in a statement. The exact launching date will be determined later, it added.
KT, also South Korea's second-largest wireless operator after SK Telecom Co. (SKM, 017670.SE), has sought to diversify its offerings of mobile devices in a move to better compete with other operators in one of the world's most saturated wireless markets.
The Korea Communications Commission, the country's telecommunications regulator, last month reviewed and approved Apple's request to sell iPad in the domestic market.
KT is also the sole provider of Apple's popular iPhone 4 in the local market.
