There is no port of calibre for Android. There is no official interest for a port and it would be a lot of work.
Well, as to no interest, I'm not sure about that, as Calibre relies on Python, and I'd sure like to see a Python port to Android. A lot of work; most certainly!

Hi,

Agreed ... I searched and do see that Python does already exist for Android (SL4A - Scripting Language for Android) as does Jython so porting from Python to Java would not be required at all which is news to me.

Also you would not need get all of calibre running, just the viewers part of the code. I agree this would be a lot of work but should be doable depending on the requirements of the viewer software.
See what I get for not reading the whole thread before posting!

They key to my statement was [B]official[\B]. As in interest from Kovid or any of the other devs such as myself.

I'll put in a plug for Aldiko. I'm very happy with it on my Galaxy Tab. I think the paid version does give you extra fonts and I like to support software developers so I went with the paid version.

Yep. This is what I was going to recommend. I've built if from the source. Not done anything with modding it though.

A work around might be to convert them to MOBI using Calibre, or if that does not work try converting to FB2.

I think coolreader is the best reader on Android its opensource. It works with many formats txt, rtf, epub, fb2, html etc plus you can set your custom css that can override the internal
css so no need to format each book according to your taste.

Yep, I'm liking it too and the latest version is improved and handles Adobe DRM for both epub and pdfs.
