Does anyone know if Apple are going to make the iBooks Author available so any publications you make are available for all OS devices rather than just the iPad?

Its such a good program its a pity its only available for the iPad... Anyone know anything?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)

    Pages will generate a standard ePub file that can be used on iBooks with both iPhone & iPad.


    Given the current feature set that iBA offers, I expect it will only be for iPad for some time to come.


    In any case, Apple tends to avoid discussing future plans, so....

    I was under the impression that it would only generate your publications that only a iPad could read. I think now I am under the impression that if you send it to Apple via iTunes Producer you can publish it to iBookstore once it has been checked by Apple.

    Both true.

    Anyone know how long you can expect to wait?


    See the thread Once my book is uploaded, how long before it appears in iTunes?   

    ...there are others available here via search if you like.
