Apple Launches iTunes Store in Brazil & Latin America


O que o Canadá ou a Inglaterra tem que o Brasil não poderia ter? Lembre-se que o Brasil é a oitava economia do mundo e o Real é uma das moedas mais valorizadas do mundo nos últimos anos! E isso a Apple viu!
E vai se acostumando a ler em português, pois será ainda mais importante nos próximos anos! Para você que não sabe ler em português:
What Canada or England is that Brazil could not have? Remember that Brazil is the eighth largest economy in the world and Real is one of the world's most valued currencies in recent years! And that Apple saw!

And very surprised for being the second country to have iTunes Match! Probably is some type of compensation for wait so long and for all our effort on creating accounts in other countries just to be included lol :)...
Now I would like to see a real Apple Store on some place at Brazil!

Sure, it is quite nice to finally have an iTunes store in Venezuela with movies and music!
It would be nicer if payments could be made with our national currency instead of $

"Brazil before Canada or the UK?" As a Brazilian, i found that to be kinda offensive. Better think twice before people misunderstand what you meant.
As for the release, I'll be more excited when the games categorie goes online around here... Brazil doesn't suck, politician around here does.

Was just for apps (and no games in Brazil, because of some law regarding age classification that apple and gov dont agree).
Music, films and so on, just now. Many people in Brazil however created accounts on US or any other country just to use it.

Shatters easily, just get a case and you will be fine.. I ve had a bunch of idfenrs with IPhone 4 s and they have a cracked screen Because they didn't have a case!!!! But mine didnt crack because i have a case!!!!! And i always drop mine so, Hope i helped Good Luck!!!
