iTunes Music Store prepped for European release?Apple might be working hard to roll out the iTunes Music Store (iTMS) in another ten more countries scattered across the European Union (EU) – with a timeframe given which could very well be as soon as next month, at least that is what Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita claims in this machine-translated page.

While the App Store is already alive and kicking in all 27 countries which make up the EU, only a dozen of those have the iTMS, (no) thanks to licensing restrictions. At point of publishing, the full number of iTMS’s availability worldwide is a paltry two dozen countries, going to show just how much more potential there is in terms of revenue for the iTMS.

So far, said translated report points out the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland as being on Apple’s good side, while MacRumors are flirting with names such as Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. I guess the poor folk living in Cyprus and Malta could very well be left out of the equation no thanks to their geographic isolation and relatively small populations. Guess this is one case where size does matter.
