I'm looking into this iPad. Seems pretty useful for education.

The whole bookstore thing - isn't it just like stanza with a few more publishers? Sounds pretty standard stuff.
Yeah, I don't think the bookstore is exceptionally revolutionary, but having it on the device is nice, and it may put some pressure on Amazon's market as well.
I wonder if Amazon makes most of their money on Kindle sales or ebook sales. If it's the latter, do you think they'd be willing to throw their hat in with the iPad? If they sell books and make most of their money that way, would they really care about the Kindle?
That's indeed interesting, considering the fact that Amazon has a kindle client for iPhone already out. Were they doing that because they thought the small-screen experience would make people eventually want to upgrade to a Kindle? Does the iPad change that? We'll have to wait and see
Will iPod touch users receive This bookstore update??I've been wanting to read a good old book on my iPod for agest
This Book store will have everybook out there or just educational old books?
I would not be surprised if it did. Though there are kindle and stanza for the iPod if you want to read on it. Myself, I find the iPod entirely too small to make a good reader.
@Just_For_now Hard to say right now. I imagine you'll see both. Jobs did hint that they've been in talks with publishers, and that some publishers are currently unhappy with the amazon/kindle store experience. So I expect we'll see NYT bestsellers and textbooks both. Just depends on to what extent.
