The CyBook unquestionably has the best support for Mobipocket of any eInk device currently on the market, and will shortly also offer the choice of using a firmware version which supports ePub, too. (ie two different firmware versions, one supporting Mobi, the other ePub.). That, to my mind, gives you the best of both worlds.

The BeBook's Mobi support is, by all accounts, not wonderful. Not terrible, but not wonderful. Eg, it does not support dictionary lookup; a feature which, to me personally, is important.
