MOBI - MobiPocket format, usable with MobiPocket's own reading software on almost any PDA and Smartphones. Mobipocket's Windows PC software can convert .chm, .doc, .html, .ocf, .pdf, .rtf, and .txt files to this format

Worth noting perhaps is that kePub is the proprietary format of Kobo, very close to ePub, but does NOT require Adobe DRM as it supplies its own unique DRM.

And possibly one more ... the ePub DRM variant Nook uses which makes its books unreadable on other Kobos and Sony devices which otherwise share the ability to display Adobe DRM.
