Apple will be rolling out its iBooks app and iBookstore internationally alongside the iPad’s launch on Friday, May 28. Press releases from the UK, Australia, Canada, and Japan indicate that the iBooks app for iPad, including the iBookstore, will be available as a free download from the App Store on May 28; as with pricing, Apple has yet to update the press websites of many of the other countries slated to launch the iPad on that day. We will be updating this story with further details as they become available.

Update: Apple has confirmed that both Italy and Spain will also be getting iBooks and the iBookstore on May 28.

Update x2: France has also been confirmed to receive iBooks and the iBookstore on May 28.

Update x3 Germany is now confirmed for the May 28 iBooks launch as well.
