KT launches Nexus One with Froyo

Look close. There are Nexus Ones in that picture. Now look a little closer (you do see the phones, don't you?) and you'll see the Froyo launcher on those phones.  That's because Korea's number two carrier, KT, is set to launch the Nexus One running Froyo (Android 2.2) on June 21st.  It's the same Nexus One we all know and love hardware wise, and will be limited to 4,000 units for the launch date.  Interestingly enough, the phone will be subsidized by KT ($125 USD on a two-year contract) as well as be sold contract free for $576 USD.  KT has promised that they will have ample stock and the phone will be "readily available" for purchase in retail stores in July.

Does this mean that we can plan on seeing Froyo for the Nexus One this week?  Or that we will be seeing Nexus Ones pop up in T-Mobile retail locations soon?  We don't have the answers, but things are developing in a very interesting way. [Korea Times via Engadget]
