SK Planet presents "Android in Korea"; An Event For Mobile Game Developers On The Android Platform

March 19, 2013---- SK Planet and The Free 2 Play Forum announce the first annual "Android in Korea" Event, presented by SK Planet.  This new event is for mobile game developers creating games and apps on the Android platform, who are interested in entering the lucrative Korean mobile gaming market. Media interested in learning more about the space are also invited to attend.  Space for the event is limited so interested attendees should RSVP quickly at: http://androidforkorea.eventbrite.com.

As the operator of the largest carrier-owned Android marketplace T-Store, SK Planet accounts for over 50% of all Android revenues in Korea and commands a 70%+ marketshare of carrier-owned Android market places.  SK Planet has over 14 million users on the T-Store and SK Telecom, the parent company, commands a 50%+ share of the mobile carrier market.

Until now, entering the Korean gaming market was difficult to do because it was simply not known how to do so. For the first time, the marketplace operators are coming to GDC to reach out directly to Android developers to give a background of how large the market is, and how to get their game on to the T-Store.

"The Korean Android market is third only to the US and Japan, and North American developers have been asking 'How do we get into this market?' We are pleased that we're able to finally shed some light on the process and the market potential for mobile game developers," says Mary Min, Event and Free2Play Forum Organizer.

Seating is limited to 1500 maximum so those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP quickly by registering here:
