Apple reportedly to launch iTunes Music Store in Latin America in December
We got a couple tips from our South American readers indicating that the iTunes Music Store might be heading to Brazil. Now Veja, a Brazil-based magazine, says this store will launch December 8 and will include Roberto Carlos, a popular singer who has yet to make the digital transition.
The Next Web, who provided the translation, said the December 8 launch will include all of Central and South America. Mexico already has an iTunes Music Store.
However, to start with, customers are restricted to using international credit cards and will pay in dollars. Veja stated local currency should be available within the next six months. This isn't that unusual, as until recently China had similar restrictions with the App Store.
