Are there EPUB limitations on a Samsung E65?
Is there a way to test the reader - which versions are supported, which features are ok, etc? Some kind of Acid Test.

I don't know of any reader that supports everything covered by the ePub 2 standard (yes, this is a dire state of affairs). I've attached an ePub that can be used to test a few things that readers commonly get wrong or fail to support. Don't expect anything to cover the whole Unicode range, but if you get anything beyond Latin-1 Supplement count yourself lucky. This test is very limited, though, it only covers a few things that are common problems with ereaders.

Some other things that can fail:
oeb-page-head and oeb-page-foot: I know of no reader that supports them properly, but at least they should be removed from the text flow, i.e., treat them as "display: none".
Proper PNG support: at least ADE seems to have problems with PNG images with less than 8 bit colour depth.
Hyperlinks in images: Just make a <a href="..."><img ...></a>, and it doesn't work in ADE (or not always). Not to mention imagemaps.
About the test file:
The ligatures test depends on the font. If the used (default or embedded) font has no ligatures, not using them is not a problem. If it does, it can be considered so.
Being picky, the smallcaps test should have the spaces outside the <small> markup
