Amazon secures deals with two publishers
The latest reports say that Amazon is working to strike deals with publishers before the iPad becomes available on Saturday. According to The Wall Street Journal, Amazon has already secured deals with Simon & Schuster and HarperCollins. The new deals are similar to those with Apple which allow the publishers to set e-book prices via the agency pricing model. Amazon is also said to be in advanced discussions with Hachette Book Group and Penguin.
