iTMS Denmark | Poland | Netherlands In October?
According to AppleInsider, Apple is actively attempting to finalize arrangements that will deliver the iTunes Music Store to several European countries this October. Already offered in the US, the UK, France & Germany, the localized versions of the iTMS make available Apple's large catalog of per-track music downloads, along with music videos and spoken-word content from Audible.com. So far, Apple has yet to negotiate a deal for a Japanese or Canadian localization of the store.
MSN Music, the audio-download store from Microsoft, is expected to debut prior to the iTMS in Denmark. Apple has apparently gone on record as saying they're not intimidated by the competition.
