I realize the iBookstore will only be available to the US at launch, and while that's a bummer, I can deal with it. A really sour detail would be if we couldn't even use the normal app for whatever reason. I imagine the iBookstore isn't available due to the difficulty of licensing in other countries, but if they took that part out of the iBooks app for international users I can't imagine what the problem would be if we used our own ePub books. (Apple now says we can use our own books, as long as they're non-DRM ePubs.) If for whatever reason they don't allow the normal iBooks to be distributed internationally, sans the store, I've heard whispers we can create a fake US iTunes account and use that to download the app. Is this true? Could I continue using my Canadian apps? Also, if we can use our own apps, how would that work for syncing them? Would we use that "mounted disk mode" we've heard a bit about and drag and drop them like a flash drive? Or would there be an iTunes panel like Music?
