Exclusive: iPad iBooks Pricing Shoots Up
It seems like our revelations surrounding eBook pricing on the iPad didn't go unnoticed.
For unknown reasons, following our announcement, almost all eBooks from the New York Time's BestSeller list on Apple iBookstore have been give a major price increase. The old standard price-point of $9.99 has just been changed for most publications to $12.99.
This sudden change is extremely intriguing. Is Apple using this to figure out where the leak is coming from? Did Amazon react to our announcement and pressured publishers to rise the prices? We don't know. It also remains to be seen if these price changes are just temporary or definitive.
I have added above the complete screenshots of the New York Times' Bestseller list from before, and after our announcement.
