Ubook is beginning preliminary Epub Support.

It opens it as a zip file, which ubook is happy with.

No metadata, tocs, curly quotes, special characters, hyperlinks, or xml, and a real license is still $15, but hey - this is the first software that even tries to open Epub for Windows Mobile.

So, Yay µBook!

I believe FBReader runs on Windows Mobile and it has had ePUB support for quite a while.

Oops, That is what I get for trusting my memory. There is a Java version that should be able to run on Windows Mobile but you are correct, no native version yet.

Re: Ubook + Epub = Yay!
Also one reader brought to my notice that some books have xml (xhtml) text instead of .html file. Here's the recipe to make it work, until I fix that:

For some reason the HTML is tagged as XML in the OPS folder. So here's the steps (that you'll have to do only once):
- Go to Open...
- At the top hit the +/- to get the browser options
- Tap browser options, then tap on Show All files.
- Go to the OPS folder in the epub file.
- Open one of the xml file.
- Now you'll see that uBook doesn't know what to do with XML, so go to
Options...
- Go to the Book section
- Again hit the +/- to see advanced options
- In Parser, Select Use HTML
- Then above, hit Save as Default for XML
Now you can go back to the XML file (or any XML file) to read it normally.

Cumbersome I know, but it works. I will add defaults for XML to go the HTML way for the next release.
