iBook transfer between iDevices

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Anyone know if it's possible to transfer an iBook between iDevices? I have iTouch now but will be getting(hopefully) an iPad 2 soon. If I buy and download an iBook from the iBookStore to the iTouch, will I be able to transfer it to the iPad?

Also, is it a DRM thing that iBooks can't be read on Macs and synced to iDevices like other media?

    Yes, you can put your iBook on all iDevices. Even on all devices at the same time.

    When you sync your Touch (by the way, it is iPod Touch not iTouch) to iTunes the iBook will be uploaded into iTunes. From there it will be made available for download to all your iDevices that support iBooks.

    And yes... ePub purchased through iBooks has DRM... So far Apple has chosen not to release a DRM savvy ePub reader for OSX.
