Non-Apple ePub Books Will Work on iPad

We’ll conclude iPad Friday with some useful iPad details. Blogger Make Cane did some close reading of the new iPad detail pages Apple posted this morning when the device went on sale and found out a couple of things that will be of great interest to eBook fans.

First, he found the answer to a question that’s been plaguing this blogger, at least, for weeks: we will indeed be able to import non-Apple-bought EPub eBooks into iPad. Note the last sentence of the text in the image above, from the Apple Website.

Next, he noticed that the iPad will let readers display white text on a black screen by modifying the accessibility settings.
