iTunes may be in Europe next week

The Register is speculating that the iTunes Music Store will launch in Europe next week. A ‘major announcement’ is expected on Tuesday 15th June – whether this is the actual launch or something else remains to be seen. It’s certainly long overdue – iTMS went live in the US over a year ago and there are a lot of people in Europe (myself included) who are waiting with interest. It’s also possible that the iPod Mini will be launched in Europe that day too.
The Register also mentions that Napster has added 200 000 more songs to its catalogue, taking it up to 700 000 and making it by far the largest online music store currently available in this country. It’s possible that the increase is linked to Apple’s arrival here, along with the launch of Sony’s Connect service which is also on the way soon.
