Next Big Thing July 7, 2007

There is life outside the iPhone.

There’s the iTunes Store.

iTunes is now selling select whole albums from indie bands at much lower rates of US$5.99 and US$6.99 in the Next Big Thing section. Some of them are even DRM-free iTunes Plus tracks. (Clicking on this link will open up your iTunes app and take you online to the Store’s NBT page.)

In the spirit of democratizing music and allowing access to excellent indie bands and giving these bands a crack at getting somewhere, Apple‘s move is commendable. That said, when the heck are you opening up the store to our region of the world? *grumble*
