In addition, Borders joined the eReader battles today, offering a $20 gift certificate with a purchase of a $149 Kobo Reader.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs had this statement: “People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month.”
