Reader able to buy full albums now
After a bit of a false start in the initial hour, the Polish iTunes Store -- at least the music portion -- now appears to be operational, according to a MacNN reader report. Reader Adam S. was able to purchase a copy of the Black-Eyed Peas' latest album from the store, which uses Euro pricing of .99 € (approximately $1.35 US) per song and around 10€ ($13.50) per album, according to a report from Polish site MyApple.
Earlier today, MacNN reported on plans by Apple to open stores in up to 10 new European Union countries, with reports that some functionality was already working. Early reports on MyApple indicate that some parts of the Polish store, such as iBooks and movies, are not yet available -- but screenshots show successful app and music purchases.
Plans to open the iTunes Polish store, along with Hungary, the Czech Republic were originally reported in Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita. Other European users are reporting that movie purchases and rentals are now working in Nordic and northern European countries such The Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway, along with Belgium, fueling speculation that Apple will soon begin selling the Apple TV in those countries.
