Apple's iBookstore to expand to 18 new countries tonight at 'iPad mini' event
The Apple iPad mini event will be livestreamed on Apple TV in what’s a first for Apple, and now that we know that the focus of the event will be education, one of the last pieces of the puzzle falls in - Apple will expand its iBookstore to 18 new countries.

Apple will open its book store for tons of Latin American markets, so expect to hear also about some Spanish-language content. Here is the list of new countries the iBookstore is expected to arrive at:


"The books aren't immediately available in the new areas," a publisher who saw the new markets appear in iTunes said. "iTunes Connect is showing their status as pending for contract reasons, although I'm quite certain they'll trigger to available during tomorrow's keynote. This is quite a big jump for iBooks."

Just yesterday we looked at the way Apple has the strongest entertainment ecosystem in all aspects except for books where Amazon is clearly in the lead. That is a pretty big move for Cupertino now, and it’s quickly catching up. Let’s wait to see if it gets official later on today.

Millions care, and it seems u do too as u took time to open the article read it scroll down click to post, then post something. I guess u have no idea how big a business online reading is, or how profitable iBooks has been. Maybe u should find out instead of just running off at the mouth.

Apple is really not a value provider. I mean one of the highest sales of Apple products are in the Middle East because people have the money to spend here even though Apple products are sold as much as 40% higher compared to the US. what's the point of owning an apple product when half its services arent available to us? Apple Sucks!

Just ignore the troll, he pretends to be the voice of reason but supports the apple trolls and thinks he can decide who can comment. His arrogance, immaturity and lack of any tech knowledge shines through every comment he makes

Not mention a lack of direction, a sense of purpose and I am guessing a lack of general hygiene foolishly thinking an APPLE a day will keep the doctor away :)

Actually you're right I live in one of those countries and I don't care about iBooks because we've bought from Kindle and Kobo for many years now. Apple is late.

It should have a pretty competitive price point.

Sometime back someone was apparently made to say "PIZZA IS A VEGETABLE" (but that failed to give a boost to PIZZA sales) so now same folks would say IPAD Mini is a BOOK ... bribe your way to higher sales ... :)
