Amazon signs up to new e-book pricing deals

Amazon.com Inc has struck two new deals with major book publishers on the pricing of e-books

The Wall Street Journal reports this week that CBS Corp’s Simon & Schuster and News Corp’s HarperCollins will set their own prices for e-books on Amazon.com

Amazon versus Apple

Selected new best sellers will be priced at $9.99 (£6.55), though most new e-books will be priced between $12.99 (£8.52) to $14.99 (£9.83).

Most older e-books on Amazon.com from the two publishers will cost less than $9.99.

It is a similar deal to that made by the two publishers with Apple for the iPad’s iBookstore application.

The Apple iPad, as you most likely know, launches in the US on Saturday.
