Me, though, I use Stanza (along with Calibre to convert my Mobi library to ePub and serve the files to my Touch).

Feel free to test out any other formatted files.
Not the Apple but the BlackBerry Storm using MobiPocket. Looks good.

With these small screens I think it's best to remove so many white spaces.

Yes, those are older files that I double-spaced, and I plan to redo them... someday...

Has anyone heard any more about the "official" Mobi reader for the iPhone/iPod Touch? When initially announced, it was "due by the end of the [ie last] year".

Yes, I did indeed. According to the always well-informed Mister Moynahan, it seems to be quite imminent. Hint:Amazon press conference. Look here and here

That would be nice to have access to Amazon's eBooks. My wife has an iPod Touch and if a Kindle app is released, then I could purchase eBooks from Amazon and convert to work with our Sony Readers, That's better (IMHO) to me then being able to read Mobipocket eBooks on the Touch.

You are perhaps forgetting that Kindle books are only available to the rather small percentage of people who live in the US? Mobi books are available world-wide.

I wonder if Amazon will try to close the Gift Card loophole that allows non-US owners of a Kindle to buy ebooks. This probably isn't a big deal when the Kindle itself is unambiguously a US purchase, but there are millions of non-US iPhones. Perhaps there will need to be a US iPhone registered to the account to buy from the Kindle store.

They could try, bit I'm not sure how they would do this. How do they know if the person is in the US or not? You could have parents getting their kids a Kindle and giving them a budget of giftcards for book buying.

You might say, oh do it via IP. But, Amazon supports Kindle owners being able to access their books via the web site when they are out of Whispernet area. And out of area doesn't mean out of country... there is alot of the US that is not covered by sprint's network.

just purchase and install "bookshelf" from iTunes and set it up. I've been using it with nothing but mobipocket on my iphone and never had any problems of any kind.

With calibre you can convert all your PCR's and be up and going in no time with some other benefits too. I was also on mobipocket, but 1) no iPhone app working in time and 2) no decent library manager desktop app
