Apple Computer, maker of the mega-popular iPod music player, has called off its plan to open a customer service call center in India, roughly two months after it was announced in March, The Wall Street Journal reports.

A spokesman with Apple told the Journal the Cupertino, Calif.-based company had “re-evaluated” its earlier decision and decided to open call centers in other countries, though he declined to specify which.

Earlier today, Armonk, N.Y.-based IBM announced it would be boosting its R&D investment in India, where it already employs some 43,000 people, with an extra $6 billion over the next three years.
