Apple So, yeah, uhm, I bought an iPad 2 today. I still don't think anyone really needs a tablet, but that doesn't mean I didn't want one. I wanted to wait until the HP TouchPad was announced, but now that it has, it seems it won't be coming to The Netherlands any time soon. As such, the iPad 2 it was. A few quick fist impressions.

iBooks is only available in the US yet, so, not for me (nor Thom) :-(

I'm in The Netherlands and I have iBooks and I have some PDFs in it. There are not a lot of books in the Dutch store, mostly classic stuff.

So I got an account in the US store also with an iTunes gift card bought on-line and I could download books there too.

But I'm a retro guy so all the classic Jules Verne stuff is good enough for me.

Incorrect. iBooks (app) is available almost everywhere. What might be missing is the iBookStore, but that doesn't stop iBooks from working. It's a damn good PDF viewer as well as iBookStore client.

iBooks is also available in Canada. Have it installed on my 2nd gen iPod Touch running iOS 4.1.
