New from Apple's WWDC: iBooks

“I’d like to tell you about one of our apps we’re updating today: iBooks. … I’ve got a few stats for you. In the first 65 days, users have downloaded over 5m books, that’s about 2.5 books per iPad, which is terrific.”
new features:
Quote:
“We’ve added another big enhancement — the ability to view and read PDFs. So we’ve built that in.” Big applause. “You can now view PDFs. We’ve put a little selector at the top — books and PDFs. You get a whole new bookshelf just for PDFs, they just look gorgeous.”

10:10AM - “As you know, you can create highlights, you can also make notes. Now you can make notes. In addition, we’ve added a control to just tap and bookmark a page — under ToC you’ll see all the notes, highlights, and bookmarks.”
Interesting, the PDFs are listed in a separate bookshelf.

Looks like iBooks will show PDFs differently-see the little thumbnails at the bottom?

Good question. He mentioned "updating today" for iBooks, but didn't say exactly. I'd assume it will have to wait for iOS4 to be released, even though its a separate app. iOS4 is in gold master now for devs to check out..which hopefully means it is coming soon.

I'm guessing drag and drop thru iTunes, but he also mentioned opening PDFs via email.

Any word yet whether it can read DRM'd PDFs from other bookstores?

No word. Which usually means, no.

All iBooks is missing is...books. Hard to buy anything when all they have are freebies here.

Hard to buy anything with their atrocious navigation too...the store seriously needs an overhaul.

My guess is iBooks update will be released to coincide with iOS 4's release.
