In the ongoing race to cover the globe, Apple is launching the iTunes Store in 12 new countries.
Just days after opening the App Store to 32 additional countries, Apple released a press release this morning to announce that the iTunes Store is also extending its reach to another nine countries in Asia today, including Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan.
Apple appears ready to open the virtual doors to its iTunes store in the Philippines and Singapore, putting an end to over three months of rumors sparked by a “Parental Control” setting in iTunes 10.6.
Some Asian customers pleased, but non event for othersUsers in the Asian countries where the iTunes Store is now available shared that they were pleased after a long wait.
There will be over 20 million songs available for purchase and download on the iTunes Store.
The only way they could access music or movies from the iTunes store was by using gift cards sold in other countries such as the United States or Britain that already had their own stores.
