Amazon MP3 finally heading to Europe? According to a new report in the British Telegraph, the giant e-tailer Amazon is in talks to finally bring its popular Amazon MP3 store to Europe, and even as early as October.
The report says senior Amazon officials have been in talks with British labels to strike deals that would allow for the DRM-free store to open in the UK in October.

When the store launched in the US last year, Amazon had promised that a 2008 international launch was imminent and that it was likely to expand to Canada, Japan, and regions in Europe.

The British launch is sure to have a bigger impact in the UK then the US store is having in North America, as there are very few online stores that make DRM-free tracks available in the UK, and iTunes does not have the dominant market share that it has in the States.
