“We plan to open the first app contest, which will include participants from Korea, Japan and China, by the first half of this year to work toward having our high-quality mobile apps enter the foreign markets.”
Those who are selected to take part in the global project will receive information about the overseas smartphone application markets so that they can localize the apps, according to KT officials. They will also be able to get additional consulting. A total of 100 teams will be chosen to take part in the project.
