Reports: Apple plans iBooks-related announcement this month

TechCrunch | All Things D
Apple is planning a “media-related”¬†announcement later this month in New York, Kara Swisher writes.¬†Alexia Tsotsis confirms the report and says the event will “unveil improvements to the iBooks platform” and attendance will be “more publishing industry-oriented than consumer-focused.”

There are no reports yet of what those improvements may be. Perhaps Apple will be addressing some of the features that e-book rival Amazon offers, like the ability to lend a purchased e-book to another person, or apps to read an iBook on something other than an iPhone or iPad (PCs, Android phones, etc.). Regardless, it will be something to watch as e-books play a growing role for news organizations and individual journalists.
