Submission + - North Korea to enable mobile internet access - for visitors only (bbc.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: The BBC reports that the reclusive country of North Korea is planning to enable 3G mobile internet access. It will not be available to the country's estimated 1 million mobile users, however. The service will be available only to international visitors, who have only been allowed to bring their own mobile devices into the country since January of this year. The decision comes shortly after Google Chairman Eric Schmidt said enabling 3G internet in the country would be "very easy" during his recent visit there. Currently, North Korean citizens can only access a small number of state-controlled sites. Might this decision open the door for some of them to surreptitiously access the open net?
