Osamu Waki, the head of Panasonic's mobile division, spoke today at a news conference and announced that Panasonic will start rolling out Android based phones in Japan sometime in 2011 and hit the rest of the world with them by 2012.

In addition to the studio albums being available, iTunes also has links to the Beatles box set, video highlights, and even a Ping page for those using the new function. "It has been a long and winding road to get here. Thanks to the Beatles and EMI, we are now realizing a dream we've had since we launched iTunes ten years ago," said Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
