Apple to open Korean branch

Spring in Jobs' sole due to over-demand

Encouraged by reports of clones of the iMac PC, Apple is expected to open an office in Seoul in October. According to English language paper The Korea Herald, Jobs has authorised a startup in the peninsula, using Korean sales agent Elex as the source. Apple US will put money into the venture, according to the newspaper. That follows Motorola's decision yesterday to take a decisive controlling share in a Korean telecomms company. No amounts were disclosed but it is expected that South Korean manufacturers will help supply parts and machines themselves, due to an unprecedented demand for the new Apple Macs. Apple UK could not be contacted at press time. ®
