Free eBooks in iBooks

Blogger Mike Cane is still taking a close look at the iBookstore, this time via the official guided tour from Apple. In his newest post he noticed something interesting–that a lot of the free eBooks depicted in the tour are new, current titles, not public domain books–such as Hot, Flat and Crowded by Thomas L. Friedman

We here at eBookNewser have to wonder whether these titles will actually be free on iBooks when it launches, or if this is just filler content Apple put up in its teaser. We’ll find out soon enough, and we’ll get back to you.
