Tidbits from the iPad commercial: Book prices, My Documents (and phantom camera?)

Also, TUAW noticed a NYTimes Best Seller list button at the bottom.

During Apple’s iPad commercial last night, we caught a glimpse of iBookstore pricing. The prices seem to fall below hardcover books, audiobook, paperback prices and even Kindles’s pricing. For instance, Ted Kennedy’s memoir, True Compass costs $23 for the hardcover, $19.25 for the B&W Kindle version and $14.95 for the iPad version.  Other books show similar price lines.  

Also, Apple looks to store documents on the iPad in a “My Documents” folder in iWork touch.  This was touched on briefly after the launch event but it is interesting that Apple chose this nomenclature.  This, perhaps to make it easier on the PC people to understand the storage architecture?  You can see that and some more of the interface from the screenshot below:

And finally, for you conspiracy theorist/Art Bell types, we have a smudge/iR sensor/CIA hidden camera three seconds in:

Thanks to everyone who sent these in!
