The information have been summarized and listed out in point form below for everyone’s convenience.
Miku to get covered in a magazine in the US called “Tokyo Kawaii”, this is a iPhone application and the publisher is by ASCII.

Possibility of a Vocaloid shop opening in the US should there be enough demand for it.
Plans for a English Miku to be materialized provided her Facebook has more than 39,390 likes.
