I suspect that all adroid readers that supports Mantano will handle epub smallcaps.
I'll try to be clearer:
Embedded fonts aren't generally supported by epub readers.

New subject:
I use {font-size:0.875;} instead of {font-variant:small-caps;} so that the result will be uniform across platforms, not because it is not supported. Here is a link that may interest you.

I agree that CR is a pretty nifty app; For epub I prefer Mantano Reader but there doesn't seem to be many apps for mobi/prc. I tried the Kindle app but the lack of folders/collections organization was a killer. CR is the best mobi reader I've found although I can't get the internal TOC working for mobi/prc - the kindle app works well with mobi TOCs. While I often use smallcaps in my own epubs, it isn't really a problem for me regarding mobi/prc. For CR I especially like the option of changing the default font by downloading my own choice. It's a shame, though, about the epub smallcaps and mobi TOC problems.
You can also add your own fonts to the Mantano font folder.
