O’Reilly Media is reporting that they have 800 eBooks available through in the iBookstore, with a couple hundred more to come in the next few.
Andrew Savikas is the VP of Digital Initiatives at O’Reilly Media, has more on his blog: “Ebooks are already a big part of our publishing business, and we know many are read on iOS devices. Having those ebooks available for sale in the iBookstore makes it even easier to find, buy, and read hundreds of O’Reilly and Microsoft Press titles on iOS devices. As always, there’s no DRM on ebooks sold by O’Reilly, so it’s easy to read the open-standard EPUB files purchased from the iBookstore on nearly any device with EPUB support.”
The O’Reilly titles on iBooks are currently only available in the U.S. and Canada, but they have plans to expand to every territory with an iBookstore.
