North Korea Debuts Its New 'iPad'
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
North Korea may be isolated, but don't claim it's technologically backward. You know all about North Korean missiles. Then there's North Korean consumer technology.

North Korea also has Netflix, which mostly features programs about North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
