Lonely Planet's iPad Guides Released

Lonely Planet just released the first of five e-books available on the iPad. Their well-known guides on Great Britain, Italy, Spain, France and Ireland were the first to be published, boasting 3,000 hyperlinks, detailed maps and hundreds of images, according to Gadling.

The content is all stored locally, which means you don't have to worry about WiFi connectivity or those pesky roaming bills to access data. The guides are now available on Apple's iBooks store.
