As part of its fastest rollout ever, Apple launched the iPhone 5 in South Korea on Friday to significant demand from wireless carriers SK Telecom and KT Corporation. Combined pre-orders hit over 300,000 units leading up to the midnight launch with SK's 50,000 units eclipsed by the 250,000 garnered by KT, reports The Chosun Ilbo.While both carriers are offering subsidies for the iPhone 5, KT promised to waive early upgrade fees for those anxious to switch to Apple's newest handset. China, the next massive market to get the iPhone, also saw healthy pre-release activity as second-largest carrier China Unicom reported over 100,000 preorders in less than 24 hours. The Chinese launch will kick off on next week as part of a 50-country blitz for December.
