iPad App and Books stores are active in Australia

Just noticed that the App and Book stores now work on an iPad in Australia.

Last time I tried there were just error messages saying they aren't available in Australia.

Nothing by Emma Daniels that I could find just yet. It doesn't have any sort of Australian "feel" to the collection, I guess it's just books that are permitted to be distributed here.

One more week folks!


I spoke too soon. What we were seeing above was the US store. Shortly after that, the store emptied out:

And later it filled up with free books:

Actually I like the prominence of the free books, in the US store there is no category for free books so you are constantly being shown commercial texts.
