Amazon MP3 starts going global this year
According to an official press release, Amazon MP3 will begin to offer its service globally this year. The company claims to be responding to thousands of emails from international customers, asking when the DRM-free MP3 store will open in their country.
While the press release states, that Amazon will start the international rollout this year, it does not give dates for individual countries, nor does it list the countries in which a store will actually open.
So even though the press release is somewhat preemptive - in the sense that it really only promises that at least one non-US store will open this year - this is very promising news for Amazon's international customers.
Since beaTunes can only analyze DRM-free music, this is also great news for beaTunes users.
