iPad hits the stores, More sales for Amazon !

EBooks have become a key selling point for Apple Inc, IPAD, which goes on sale Saturday. But competitors, including Amazon.com Inc. could become the leading provider of electronic books for the new device.

One reason  that Apple is not the same side to competing providers of content to the iPhone and iPod media players, which has developed links with the iTunes music store and video company to start.

iBooks will not be pre-installed with IPAD. This means that users choose to download the free software and install it, and could equally let the users choose our Kindle Application for iPad like Apple ‘s iBook.

A reason why the iBook was not pre-installed because the application was still in development when IPAD started production. According to Apple, the software is available for download on Saturday.

The pitch with the software could open competing stores bridgeheads on the new platform multimedia to help you. The competitors have a head start in running e-book stores, which could be an important factor in competition, analysts said.
Amazon announced that it will produce an application for iPad users which will allow them to read Kindle ebook purchases and purchase a new content through the browser on the Web. It is unclear when the Kindle iPad App will be available for download.

However, Amazon is still the market leader for electronic books, since the introduction of Kindle e-book reader in 2007. Amazon has been promoting the iPad Kindle application on its website. Amazon currently owns 80% of the market for electronic books in the United States, according to Forrester Research.

In recent weeks struggled over the e-book prices with the publishers, but a new pricing model will increase the profit margin for Amazon e-books for any device available. Publishers set the prices of many electronic books, with retailers like Amazon and Apple with 30% of turnover. This guarantees a profit for each sale. Amazon’s current policy of discounts for the new best-selling e-book at $ 9.99 ended in a loss, since they paid more than $ 9.99 for the books.

Amazon now offers more than 450,000 electronic books, and has access to over 1.8 million songs free of copyright. Apple announced it will launch with 60,000 titles of five of the largest publishers.
