i was wondering though, do you know when the american CyWorld is going to be released? i have been trying to find around when they think its going to be released.

good question Kang-Bao. we don't know. Tomi any idea? Or who can we ask.

In fact it seems insane that it hasn't been launched anywhere else.

Hi Kang-bao

I have not yet heard any definite plans to launch an American version of CyWorld. I think the Chinese launch was an experiment to see if the concept can work abroad. I am certain CyWorld will be either launched or copied into every market. A third of the whole population already as members? This is going to be huge everywhere.

Tomi Ahonen :-)

well, i have been looking around and i notice japan, china and of course Korea have, but i have yet to see one stitch of info on an American CyWorld, or anything cyworld at all. i am reading the same stuff over and over trying to find out something, just anything..

so if you can find out anything please hit me up.. i have asked a much of people and this is the only place i get responce..

hope they share some info on this stuff sometime.. hopefully soon.


If SK is behind this, and they are also behind the new MVNO Helio in the US, i'll bet they have something in the works

raju is online. Deutsche Telekom and T-Online announced the launch of Cyworld Germany for December 2006. They grouped up with Cyworld to built up Cyworld portals all over Eupope.

Your article sums up well what makes renting a vacation rental so great. The need to be "the traveler and the vacation host" apart, the experience of going to the local bakery or café is unique, especially is shared with family and friends.

According to a previous source of ours, we have been told that Apple in fact has no plans to release the white model iPhone 4. Our source hypothesizes another delay communicated around March leading us into an iPhone 5 release time-frame in June / July.
