    hmm i think you need the iOS 4 released today and not the GM to install ibooks?

    The GM and today's release are exactly the same so that's not it.

    Is any one reaaly going to read a book on a little 3.5 inch screen? I couldn't imagine

    That's not entirely true. At least on the iPhone3G the md5sums don't match up and the file size is actually a few KB smaller than the GM. Though I don't know what small things would have changed, especially since the build numbers match up.

    BTW, I'm not able to get iBooks to install on my 3G. Says I can learn more about the iPad though.:confused:

    Working for me. I've been able also to import a .pdf and an epub and had them sync properly.

    Using it on my 2G Touch and it is dreadful. So damn slow. Unbearably slow.

    Absolutely. Not a whole book, but if I have some time to kill I'll knock out a chapter or two. That's the nice thing about wirelessly syncing bookmarks, you can read on whatever is convenient.

    Try redownloading iTunes.

    I had the developer's early release but that version didn't seem to work. I redownloaded iTunes and iBooks downloaded properly and show up as universal app instead of an iPad app.

    No Winnie-the-Pooh?

    I downloaded and installed iBooks for the iPhone after I had gotten through updating my 3GS and was surprised to see no Winnie-the-Pooh. I've got that on both iPads, and I thought it was automatically part of the iBooks app? I have two books that I have purchased so am a little hesitant to delete the app and reinstall it. Advice?

    A A Milne's Whinnie the Pooh? I have just downloaded it onto my 3Gs.
