If you have been looking forward to purchasing your iPad so that you can start making the most of iBooks you may want to read this post carefully, this is because it seems as if iBooks will only be available in the U.S.
If you head over to Apple.com and check out the iPad’s feature page you will see a long list of features listed (here), one of which is iBooks, however if you check out their Australian or UK sites you will see that iBooks is not listed, which suggest that iBooks will not be available in these countries.
It is unclear as to whether Apple will add the iBook feature to other countries websites or not, it could be the case that Apple will never offer iBooks in these countries.
Chances are Apple are still negotiating with carriers regarding data contracts, as we find out more we will keep you posted, for more information check out Engadget.
