Apple released iBook 2

At an event at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City Thursday morning, Apple executives introduced two new applications that the company hopes will revolutionize the way textbooks are created and consumed: iBook Author, a brand new application for Mac intended for textbook writers and publishers to create iPad-optimized textbooks, and iBooks 2, an update to the iBooks app with several new note-taking and study features.

Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller characterized the current state of textbooks and classroom learning as bleak, outdated experiences.

But there was one thing missing from announcement. While Apple touted 1.5m iPads currently in classrooms, it made no mention of how it would go about getting hardware to the rest of the high school and college students who don't have access to the gear required to utilize all these flashy new learning tools.

Of course, if rumors that the current iPad 2 will sit alongside the obviously-forthcoming iPad 3 are accurate, then it's possible we'll see a price cut that makes iPads in the classroom (and in the hands of students) a more realistic future for some of the less affluent.
