iTunes Japan in August?
A Reuters story claims that Apple will launch iTunes for Japan in August.
Major Japanese record companies, including Columbia Music Entertainment Inc., Avex Group Holdings Inc. and Toshiba-EMI Ltd., have agreed to provide songs for the service, the paper said.
Apparently Sony Music Entertainment has yet to agree to the terms. According to the article the price per song is going to be about 150 yen ($1.40). Apple had previously planned to release iTunes Japan in 2004 but the service release has seen delays.
