Update: Macworld just posted that an unnamed Apple source says Apple is currently working with developers to bring their apps in line with the new guidelines, and that we can expect to see modified app updates appearing in the coming days or weeks.

Despite all the threats, blog outrage, and speculation around Apple’s new rules for content apps over the past several months, as of this morning the three major ebooksellers’ apps already available on Apple’s App Store—Kindle, Nook, and Kobo—remain unchanged and available for download. (Sony never got a chance to play.)
Kindle and Nook both offer a link to their respective websites, while Kobo actually lets you shop their store from within the app itself. Both features are forbidden by Apple’s new guidelines, but perhaps the companies have worked out special agreements with Apple—or Apple is simply backlogged on its app approval process.
