    iBooks Not Yet Available in Canadian iTunes

    Monday the 10th marks the date when Canadians and other nations around the world may pre-order their iPads. I've already downloaded a few apps to see; of course I can't use them yet! For the fun of it I tried to access iBooks to browse some titles but it's not available in the Canadian version.
    After some searching, it appears that iBooks will not be supported when we finally get our iPads! I'm totally shocked! I was really, really looking forward to this!
    Will we at least be able to get the software in to create our own library? I do have quite a few ebooks...

    The other country thing makes me crazy! I understand Apple may not be able to SELL books in Canada yet, but the app should still be available to use as a reader. It really is a good epub reader.

    One can hope that when the iPad actually does launch there, it will appear in the app store. If not...... Stanza for iPhone works, not very pretty as you have to double size it to take advantage of the ipads roomy screen. Far from perfect, but it's free and it works. I'm pretty sure you have Calibre so transfer of books (once it's set up) is pretty easy.

    At some point I'm sure iBooks will be available, but for now it is the only ePub reader made just for the iPad. If you have some PDF books get Goodreader, very good app.

    Always good to read your posts iVan. I have not been on MobileRead for a while, but do glance at the news from time to time..... If there was anyway I could get you the iBooks app I would, but as far as I know it's impossible...

    Cool! Glad you finally have the choice.....

    How does Amazon work in Canada? The Kindle app and store are pretty good and actually the Kindle store us usually cheaper than Apple or Sony......

    The Kindle app has been good for now, but I'd love to see some books in the Canadian iBook store. Hopefully we'll get an announcement at WWDC? Doubt it, but I hope we get some non 1500s content soon

    You know one of the reasons I joined is to get more information on ways to cover myself for the fact Apple dropped the ball for Canadian customers. I hear they can not sell books in Canada for licensing reasons, but other companies do sell books and have a great selection. I went with Kobo HD which looks like it is a Canadian eBook retailer owned by Chapters-Indigo the biggest book retailer in Canada. My question is this if Apple ever find out to offer Canadians books which we can already get, is there any reason I should use iBooks? or just stick with Kobo HD?

    I really have given up on Apple and iBooks and I am close to uninstalling it. Apple blames foreign licensing agreements !!!!!! Right but explain to me how the competitors can get the license agreements but you can not? Apple iBooks = Fail for Canadians.
