News Summary: NKorea OKs mobile Web for foreigners
LOOSENING RESTRICTIONS: North Korea will soon allow foreigners to tweet, Skype and surf the Internet from their cellphones, iPads and other mobile devices. Earlier this year it began letting foreigners bring their own cellphones into the country.
FOR NON-MEMBERS ONLY: North Korean citizens will not have access to the new mobile Internet service, which is provided by a joint venture of Korean and Egyptian telecom companies.
SEPARATE REGIME: More than a million North Koreans now use cellphones under a separate set of telecommunications rules. They cannot access the global Internet from their phones, and mobile phone calls between foreigners and locals are prohibited.
