    Looks like us international folks will be able to enjoy the iBookstore on our iPads starting on May 28th. Apple Press Release: "The iBooks™ app for iPad including Apple’s iBookstore will be available as a free download from the App Store on May 28." I've checked Canada, UK and Australia, they all say it.

    This is especially exciting to me as a Canadian since our publishers haven't really joined the ebook train, yet. I assume all my US iBooks will play nice.

    I can't... I can't believe it. I'm reading the Canadian press release over and over again and it DOES say iBooks will be available for download on May 28 :eek:

    Apple hasn't added iBooks to the features list on Canadian iPad page. :confused: Maybe they'll do it later or on launch day.

    Looking forward to this! Though the kindle app will tide me over until then.

    YESS! I had a feeling that Apple would release the iPad here in Canada without the Bookstore. Darn me, doubting Apple :p
