Apple could be ready to launch its iTunes Music Store (ITMS) in Europe by the middle of June, sources said to be familiar with the companys plans have claimed. They reckon that the Mac maker may now have secured licences from the major labels and others it needs in order to open ITMS to UK and other European buyers.
Separately, weve heard the date 4 July bandied about, though since the date is far more relevant to the US than it is to Europe, it seems an odd choice, if correct. Whenever ITMS Europe launches, it will come after Napster UK, which opened its online store last week, and Sony Connect, which is scheduled to go live on 7 June.
