iTMS Now Available in the UK, France & Germany
Announced in London today, an abridged release of the European iTunes Music Store is now available in the UK, France & Germany, with plans to open to the rest of Europe in October of this year. Using the already released iTunes 4.6 in localized versions for the UK, France and Germany users can download from the same 700,000+ song catalog available in the United States at prices of 0.99 and 0.79. Release of the iTMS in Europe was previously reported.
The number one online music store in the world has finally come to the UK, France and Germany, said Steve Jobs, Apples CEO. With a huge catalogue of over 700,000 songs, breakthrough prices of just 0.99 and 0.79 per song and seamless integration with Apples wildly popular iPod, we think this is the digital music store that Europe has been waiting for.
More information is available in a press release from Apple. There is no word on a release date for other International versions.
