Apple Launches iTunes & Online Apple Stores in New Zealand
Apple has launched the iTunes Store in New Zealand, and at the same time started operating the online Apple Store New Zealand.

The Apple Store will provide customers with Apple’s complete lineup of products, including the iPod digital music player, the Intel based Mac desktop and notebook computers, the iLife ‘06 suite of digital lifestyle applications, a vast assortment of iPod and Mac accessories from Apple and third parties and Mac OS X.

Customers can custom engrave any iPod through the online Apple Store, and can custom configure their Mac to suit their individual needs. The online Apple Store offers special education pricing to teachers and university and college students.

With a catalogue of over two million songs, the iTunes Store claims the title for the most music of any digital music store in New Zealand with songs priced at NZ$1.79, music videos at NZ$3.59 and most albums at NZ$17.99.

Exclusive music featured on iTunes includes tracks from New Zealand artists Fat Freddy’s Drop, Brooke Fraser, Tim Finn, The Datsuns and Bic Runga as well as extensive catalogues from New Zealand greats including Shihad, Crowded House, The Black Seeds, Breaks Co-Op, Elemeno P and Dei Hamo. International exclusives on iTunes include albums from The Doors, Faithless, Incubus, Foo Fighters, George Michael and more. The iTunes Store features iTunes Originals from international stars Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ben Harper, Black Eyed Peas and Jack Johnson.

The iTunes podcast directory currently features over 65,000 podcasts, including featured New Zealand podcasts from TVNZ, The Voice Booth and Radio NZ.

Additionally, Apple announced that the iPod nano RED Special Edition is now available in New Zealand, only at the new online Apple Store. The iPod nano RED, available in 4GB and 8GB models, comes in a red aluminum enclosure and features up to 24 hours of battery life, Apple’s Click Wheel and an thin and light design. Apple will contribute a portion of proceeds from the sale of each iPod nano RED to the Global Fund to help fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.
