Qtrax boss Allan Klepfisz has been blogging again, and in between laying into recent coverage by an unnamed journalist (presumably CNET’s Greg Sandoval), he talks launch specifics. Qtrax will now launch, he says, in nine Asia-Pacific countries on 29th October – including China. That’s a significant shift from its original plans to go live in the US first.”We won’t be nobbled. And we will launch,” he writes, before making a veiled threat to doubters. “The underminers can continue to undermine. But we are going to strike back. By exposing. By protecting. And if necessary, by utilizing the legal system.”China is shaping up as a fascinating market, what with Apple on the verge of signing an iPhone deal, Spotify partnering with TOM Online to launch its service there, Google already offering free ad-funded music downloads, and now Qtrax targeting it as a launch market.
