Waiting for iTunes Radio in Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Scandinavia? You may be waiting until early 2014...

When Apple announced iTunes Radio for iOS 7, it was as a US only service, at least at first. Unfortunately, that might not change until 2014 at the earliest, even for countries like Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Scandinavia, which typically enjoy early Apple rollouts.

Whichever way you look at it that's an impressive number. Granted, a year ago folks may have been holding off for the then traditional summer new release, but I don't think that's all there is to it.
