Comeback of beepers (삐삐 부활)?

Brings back some Korea memories, this piece in Hankyoreh that the demand for beepers is on the rise. Beepers were on display in "Wireless Korea Expo 2004", and the number of users increases by 1000 each month. In '97 the number of subscribers was 15 million, and late last year 5000. Most of the new subscribers are said to be doctors and entrepreneurs (yôngôpchik). There's no ppippi spam, and the only fee paid monthly is cheap.
