Apple Computer (NASQ: AAPL) launched its popular iTunes Store for New Zealand on Wednesday, giving residents access to local music and integration with the iPod media player.

The launch marks the first time the Cupertino Calif.-based firm's online music store is available to the country, opening up Apple's catalog of music and allowing users to find information about their favorite artists.

With over two million songs, the iTunes Store features the largest catalog of local and international music in New Zealand, and with the new online Apple Store, it’s easier than ever to shop for everything from a personally engraved iPod to a customized Mac, said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes.

The store will sell songs for NZ$1.79, music videos for NZ$3.59 and most albums at NZ$17.99, Apple said.

The firm also launched its online New Zealand Apple Store as well. Customers can browse and purchase Apple hardware, software, accessories and a large selection of third party products from any internet browser.
