Very much so. I've said it before and I'll say it again: MobiPocket rapidly appears to be becoming the
dominant format for commercial eBooks. With the muscle of Amazon behind it, it can only thrive.
I'll be interesting to see what happens to formats like Sony's "LRX" DRM format in the future. Wonder if we'll see a future Sony Reader supporting MobiPocket?
