I have FBReader on my Android phone but to the best of my knowledge it only reads DRM-Free epub.

Well, the title of this thread is: "Official list of ePub compatible e-book devices". ADE crippled ePub compatible devices are not even mentioned in the title. That makes anything with FBReader an ePub compatible e-book device for this thread. That makes me wonder what makes that list "official"?

It's a list of Adobe ADE licensees, not of devices which currently have "released" ePub support.

aldiko ebook (epub) reading software for adroid.

here's a review : http://the-gadgeteer.com/2009/06/04/...ndroid-review/

not free, but it only costs 1.99$, so not too expensive.

Yes, see Adobe ADEPT DRM for EPUB circumvented.

Yesterday's speech

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.
Dear All:

Yesterday I gave a speech before the members of the Flash Memory Summit. Our panel was "Consumer Applications". One of those applications was eBook Readers. I had to downplay Astak and talk about eBook Readers in general. After the speech several people came up and said they had no idea that there was anybody manufacturing devices other than Amazon. They were, frankly astonished. They were also really raving about the one Maroon Pocket PRO I had there.

I stand by what I have been saying all along... even the most technical of people still have almost NO knowledge of eBooks or the benefit of eBook Readers. To them, there is such a device,Amazon makes it, and they never knew that most eBook Readers play MP3 and they want that.

I think we all need to be aware that we still (meaning Astak, Amazon, Sony, Plastic Logic, and many others ALL have a need to fairly educate the public about what eBook Readers are all about!!

But by having eBooks exclusively for the Kindle means it is a monopoly on some eBooks. And I think it's not just a monopoly in the US.

It almost is at this point. And Sony's adopting ePub for their eBook store means it's even more a done deal. And I don't think Amazon can change what's happening.

actually due to the fact that Adobe has added extensions there really is an Adobe specific ePUB. And in addition some ePUB features will not work on ADE so you have to not use them.

I think you may get your wish in so far as dedicated devices are concerned. With the exception of Amazon and Foxit all the new devices support ePUB (as well as other formats). In addition the products shipped within the last year or so are being upgraded with new firmware to support ePUB as an option.

Even with Astak, Sony, Amazon, and more, the ebook industry is still in its infancy it seems. But more people are waking up daily, and this is a good thing.
