Since the introduction of the iPad, there has been a lot of questions about the built-in ebook reader, iBooks. Questions about which ebooks will be available, how much the books will cost and are we going to have to rebuy all of our Kindle ebooks.
There is little doubt that iBooks will not read Amazon’s eBooks since Apple would really prefer making money on selling books.
Last week Amazon announced their new ebook reader that allows you to read your Kindle eBooks on your Mac. Today, Amazon announced that they have updated their iPhone app to work on the iPad.
