Telecom Lead India:
Devices major Apple has introduced online music store iTunes in 12 Asian
markets.

The largest devices maker did not launch online music store
iTunes in India and China, two major mobile markets in the
region. 

Both China and India are the fastest growing telecom markets
in the world.

The iPhone maker opened the stores in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan,
Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka
and Vietnam. 

The iTunes stores would feature a selection of local and
international music from all the major labels and thousands of independent
labels. 

Both the Chinese and Indian markets have a combined population of 2.5 billion
with an ever growing middle-class and the world’s fastest growing mobile phone
networks. 

iTunes Store will benefit music fans in Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Macau,
Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. 

Customers can also rent or purchase movies from the iTunes Store, with many
available in stunning HD, from major studios including 20th Century Fox, Paramount
Pictures, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, The Walt Disney
Studios and Warner Bros Pictures. 

The iTunes Store joins the revolutionary App StoreT which offers more than
650,000 apps to consumers in 155 countries. 

The iTunes Store is the best way for iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac and PC
users to legally discover, purchase and download music online. 

All music on the iTunes Store comes in iTunes PlusR, Apple’s DRM-free format
with high-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding for audio virtually indistinguishable from
the original recordings.
