Corby in South Korea[edit]

When the Samsung Corby was released in South Korea, Samsung Electronics changed its specification:

  • The original Bluetooth Version was 2.1+EDR, the Korean model's Bluetooth version was downgraded to 2.0+EDR.
  • While the original Corby can play non-DRM MP3 files, the Korean version is restricted to only playing with DRM.
  • The Korean Corby does not have an office document viewer.
  • The Korean Corby does not support MP3/WAV ringtones, just MA5 or MMF ringtones.
  • The Korean Corby display is upgraded from a 2.8" QVGA to 3.0" WQVGA.
  • The Korean Corby supports T-DMB television.

The price in Korea was high, the equivalent of 394.42 GBP. The model's main rivals are the LG Pep and the Nokia XpressMusic.

In South Korea, boy band 2PM advertised this phone, including a song entitled "My Color".
