Apple's rumored iPad mini event will reportedly have a strong iBooks focus.

Um, I dont think so. Margins don't mean shit if nobody buys from you.

Amazon sells the same ebooks as Apple does, but for less.
Consumers know that and that's why they shop at Amazon and not Apple.
Apple also knows it, and that's why they had to resort to collusion just to give themselves a fighting chance.

I love it!!! It's so much better than those crappy wanna be smaller tablets. You know these will sell themselves despite the few negative comments on here. Absolutely great iPad mini or iPod giant. It's still a great product others could only dream manufacturing.
