Yes, only Skoob so far (which makes their whole spiel about being "Singapore's favourite ebook store" rather laughable!!).

Update on using a Sg credit card with the Sony Store (with the T1's location set to USA). It works!! We just have to provide a US address. I did this by first downloading a free e-book and the checkout process prompted for an US address, which I keyed in at that point. Later on, when I bought a book, the address was already in the system and I just had to put in the usual credit card details. It seems the payment system didn't try to match the card # to the address . Thanks to melmac for bringing this option to my attention.

And while I'm here, the T1's browser and Wi-fi capability are very handy for borrowing from NLB's digital collection. Just point the browser to: http://singapore.lib.overdrive.com and you're good to go. For January only, NLB has upped the borrowing limit to 12 e-books.
