This looks like a concerted effort to knock Amazon off their strangle hold on the ebook market.

This is very welcome, now the next step is NO DRM.

One step at a time! We're talking about publishers here, remember? First they had to take the very scary step to create ebooks, then to decide on what format to use, and now you want them to change their mind on DRM at the same time!

I'm not sure that I understand your point. Amazon are not, and never have been, in a "monopolistic" position in the eBook market.

Certain publishers had books only available on Amazon and not in other formats.

Maybe this will make those publishers make their books available for purchase by users of non kindle devices.

What you say is true if you look at the niche market specifically, that which serves the tiny fraction of the world who knows about and appreciates eBooks. But if you look at the general public just coming into awareness of this concept, they don't know of anyone but Amazon and are only opening their eyes to the existence of alternatives. In a way this is a monopoly, albeit virtual and temporary. It's still the same sort of challenge to tackle as a competing company.

That may be true in the USA, but not elsewhere. A few people in other countries have imported Kindles, but Sony are a much bigger player than Amazon internationally.

Amazon doesn't even sell ebooks outside the US yet, does it?

The list is NOT correct. The Irex 1000S, and maybe others, should not yet be on it. According to Irex: Additional formats supported in the future (Adobe PDF/EPUB).
