The mystery over iPad eBook pricing has been solved. AppAdvice.com reports that the Apple eBook store will have the same pricing as the Kindle. They came across a preview of the iBook store and claim to have seen the iBook pricing details first hand. Someone broke the NDA in a big way, here.
27 of the current 32 eBooks featured on the New York Times bestseller's list are priced at $9.99. The entire top ten are included in that 27. The highest priced bestseller in the eBook store went for $12.99. On the Kindle, that book goes for $8.83. Still, the fact that Apple has mostly matched the $9.99 price point says some worrying things to Amazon.
