Galaxy - general questions about epub format

I have two fixed format epub files, one for Apple and one for Kindle. Since I do not have a galaxy tablet I wanted to know which one of the fixed formats will the Galaxy be able to display or will it able to display ANY fixed format pubs?

Kindle format is not epub... They use mobi or azw files. The Galaxy is able to read epubs and mobi/azw using different reading apps. Get the Kindle app for mobi/azw and Aldiko, Mantano, or cool reader (plus several others available) to read epub.

Actually, either FBReader or Cool Reader will take care of both ePub and Mobi formats; you don't need to switch apps to read one format or the other. FBReader is very easy while Cool Reader has more options.

Agree with anemic
Moon+reader does the work for ePubs and mobi/azw format books over my android device, you do not need to switch apps for different format files.
