iTunes Store in Russia on April 21? – Macitynet.it
iTunes arrives in Russia? According to some local sources of information, the clues are there. The most obvious would be some billboards that appeared in various places in Moscow (including Arbat and Barklay streets) on which the slogan "iSkoro 21-04-2008" would appear. iSkoro, written in typical Apple fonts, would translate to "iPresto".
Alongside this clue would have appeared on local sites, including the iMacintosh, owned by the main Apple distributor in Russia, rather explicit advertising banners with inscriptions such as "iTunes Store Russia 21.04.2008.", Which would confirm the store's opening date for April 21st.
The Russian market is one of the largest in the world and the opening of an Apple store in that country would also be very important to try to defeat piracy, which is widespread. When the iTunes store was opened in Russia among the major nations in the world without the Apple store, only India and China would remain, in addition to Brazil.
