Apple iPad Ebook App Is Called 'iBooks'

Amazon Kindle, meet your Voldemort. iPad has an ebook store and it's called "iBooks". Picture of the store interface after the jump. Publishers include Penguin, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Hachette - the big boys.

Doesn't look like books will be cheap, but there should be a healthy price war soon. The example book was $US15.

On the plus side, Apple is using ePub, which means books from other stores could work.
