Apple has dismissed its Korea country manager Dominique Oh, allegedly over sluggish sales of its products in the country, reports “The Korea Times” (http://macte.ch/Slg65).
“Apple terminated the contract with Oh last week,’” Apple spokesman Steve Park told the publication. We acknowledge that there are many speculations surrounding Oh’s contract termination. But we can’t do more, it’s just a simple fact.”
The contract termination comes amid the ongoing global patent war with Samsung. Apple failed to attack the lead of Samsung in the Korean smartphone market despite its “ambitious launch of i-branded products,” says “The Korea Times.”
