This begs the question, will China and their BILLIONS of people get an iTMS before WE do? How much yen will a song cost? AND, will they get a censored and "Chinese fortified" version of the iTMS inventory?? Well, I can only imagine just how IMPOSSIBLE the current record distribution agreements will be regarding this market, but we'll see!

I think you misunderstood the article, they aren't getting the iTunes music store, just a PC maker is installing iTunes on their computers, like HP is doing in North America.

No. I didn't think they were getting the store... but now, they could. That's why I was trying to read the chinese tea leaves, if you will ;)
