Thanks to iPhone 3G launch in Hong Kong iTunes store is now available in Hong Kong.
I have an Apple ID because I have a few Apple’s gadgets but it’s pretty useless although I could fake a US address to get an iTunes account for stores in the US. This workaround would enable me to download cover flow artwork and a couple of free songs, which I don’t like, and free TV shows. With iPhone 3G launch iTunes store is now live in Hong Kong with iPhone and iPod Touch applications available. At the moment they have nothing for sales except these applications.
First thing first, I need the $9.95 iPod Touch firmware 2.0 so I edited my Apple ID account filling up payment method and billing address etc. Downloaded 222.6 Mb of this firmware update tonight. I’m going to try a few free applications.
I noticed that once payment method is filled and am logged into the iTunes Store there will not be any prompts when I click purchase. By this I have authorized iTunes to take my money without further confirmation clicks.
