    Canada Demands Korea Lift Ban on Blackberry

    Advertisement



    Coal, pulp and English teachers are Canada's main export items to South Korea. But the Canadian Chamber of Commerce wants to add a more high-tech product on the list _ the Blackberry mobile phones.

    Thanks to its convenient e-mailing function, Blackberry, made by Canada's Research in Motion, has become a global hit product for financial workers with more than 11 million sold worldwide. But its sales are practically banned in South Korea because of the government's regulations on mobile phone software and its Korean partner's lukewarm response of such smartphones.

    The Canadian Chamber of Commerce this week started staging a carefully-measured protest against the Ministry of Information and Communication, saying that it is discriminating against Blackberry. If Korea continues to ban the sales of the Canadian gadget, it argues, the issue may hamper, or even break the negotiation of the free trade agreement between the two nations.

    I think this ban is more-focused towards South Korea than North Korea. =P

    The thing is North Korea was executing people found using a cell phone

    (at least as of this article from June)

    (this article from October mentions "Cell Phone Police", but doesn't mentions exectutions)

    Pretty grim I know, but if I lived there , I wouldn't be caught "dead" with any type of cell phone

    It's unwise banning blackberry. BB is very useful. When you love it and it's banned, then it's cold turkey time.
