iBooks2 revolutionary textbooks, already 350,000+ downloaded!



iBooks2 has only just been released, and 350,000 textbooks have already reportedly been sold! This information is reported from Global Equities Research. GER monitors the downloads using a proprietary tracking system, which estimates this number.

They also estimate that iBooks Author, a free textbook creator for Mac, has had over 90,000 downloads as well. A pretty interesting fact about publishers distributing their textbooks thru the iBooks store, is that they will actually make more profit than they used to, with decreased production cost and increased buyers. Apple seems to be off to a good start, here.
