    Default Korean iPhone 4 WiMAX Solution: The Egg Sleeve


    The iPhone 4's namesake can spell a lot of confusion for the novice gadgeteer. The inclusion of the 4 may cause the less knowledgeable to assume it has 4G network capabilities, like a number of it's 4G Android competitors. Korean Telecom (KT) eliminated any confusion, and subsequent disappointment, for their customers today with the release of it's new WiMax capable sleeve the "Egg."

    KT's Egg Sleeve allows the iPhone 4 to utilize their WiMax network and includes a 1500mA expansion battery that offers an additional five hours of WiMax surfing goodness. The case adds 68g to iPhones weight and just over 17mm to its thickness. It's definitely not the smallest case/sleeve, but the prospect of a Mophie Juice-like case that adds WiMax functionality is enticing. Unfortunately, the case is only available in South Korea for 128,000 Won (about $120).

    However, United States dwelling folk can still purchase mobile 4G wifi hotspots from their respective provider. It's not quite as elegant of a solution, but I can't imagine it taking too long before we see a similar 4G case here in the States. The only hold up is the lack of 4G coverage in the U.S. KT blankets 85% of South Korea with WiMax coverage, a testament to their dedication to wireless networks and the smaller footprint of the country itself.

    This is a pretty cool invention, but with the lack of 4g coverage would be a no go for me.

    It doesn't look like it would add 17mm's to the phone?

    It looks like it would be 17mm including the phone.

    Wow. It's with an apostrophe means "it is" and is a contraction. The possessive of its is just its. No apostrophe. I took this site as serious journalism jeeze..

    Anyway this is cool but since there's no 4G in America and I have a feeling we'll be seeing it later rather than sooner, there won't be an American egg most likely.

    tried the clearwire 4g/3g...hotspot..
    Wimax gadget...
    i have to say, you don't 4g in most area.
    the sales rep claim that it covers my area.
    so i bought it, pay the $$$$
    but when I get home, all i get is 3g...
    no 4g..unless I'm willing to move 5 blocks away.
    jeezz!

    another photos from the korean carrier KT.

    It`s official image with installo*s in it.

    In korea don`t have an apple store so carrier have an separated a/s regulation for iphone.

    Their a/s regulation is 'If you jailbrake iphone there is no warranty.'

    It`s so funny to see the installo*s in official image.
