AppleInsider reports today that Random House, the biggest book publisher on earth, could be about to join Appleâ€™s iBookstore. Until now, Random House has been the one major publisher that has held back from joining Appleâ€™s epublishing party, with its five biggest rivals (HarperCollins, Hachette, Penguin, Macmillan and Simon & Shuster) already involved. According to AppleInsider, Random House made a statement to the media on Monday, where it said that it has agreed to â€œthe agency model for e-book salesâ€ in the US from today.
As AppleInsider points out, this makes it much more likely that Random House will now team up with Apple in its iBookstore. Currently, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users can only buy and download Random House books via the iOS Kindle app.
