    Good to see our flag to be finally included in the list. For now what's being sold there are Apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch. I hope to see music and movies there soon.

    thanks for the info, hope to see music in there, too. iTunes will be a big help to the local music industry if they can move people into purchasing online.

    if you change your profile to PH (presuming you used to buy stuff from itunes witha US address in your account), can you still get movies, tv shows, and music? or will you get stuck with just the iphone and ipod apps?

    wouldn't it be better to just make another account for your PH account? so you can still hang on to your US account?

    For now you will be stuck with apps. I have two accounts now. My @mac email linked to iTunes PH and another email account linked to iTunes US.

    Too bad only limited features but I hope Apple should consider Music and Movie Rentals for PH. "Biruin mo arkila ka ng pelikulang Supahpapalicious on iTunes." Hahaha.

    Will you be able to sync both music/videos from iTunes US and apps from iTunes PH to the SAME iPod/iPhone... considering they're 2 different accounts?
