From "Weltbild" (read in the forum about a Spanish supplier as well) you can order a Cybook version, supporting .epub (they've cancelled Mobipocket in that, because Mobipocket doesn't allow any other DRM next to it).
Personally, I'm not a fan of .epub, because I don't like reflow. (Prefer zooming PDFs on iRex iLiad for example.)
But it's obviously the "coming format" and already has kind of a "quasi standard" status.
As I've mentioned Kindle before: I don't expect .epub coming to Kindle. Amazon most likely will try to keep their competition from Kindle and (from Amazon's point of view) already there are way too many sources for buying .epub.
