iTunes store launches in Mexico

The first iTunes store has successfully launched in Mexico. Over six years have passed since the first one came to the US.Most songs are priced at about 12 pesos, which is approximately 91 cents US. Full albums range from 90 to 170 pesos; music videos are 24 pesos.

Regardless of featuring popular Mexican artists such as Paulina Rubio, and Vicente Fernandez, it seems to have a weak start. It doesn’t currently hold as many songs as the 6 million+ US version, and lacks iPod nano and classic games, audiobooks, television shows, and movies.

According to Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services, “The iTunes Store in Mexico is off to a great start with music from all of the majors and hundreds of indie labels. And the revolutionary App Store in Mexico gets bigger and better with great new apps using amazing new features, and we can’t wait to see what developers come up with next.”

We’re waiting, too.
