    That's cool, and now you don't even need a kindle to read books! Will it be priced like kindle books?

    Nice find though!

    Been using Mobipocket for a few years now, before it came out for Blackberry. It's a great app and the newest version which allows OTA downloads is a great idea.
    Never wanted to be a simple man...

    I love MobiPocket, and I often shop at Fictionwise for my books. They have quite a few Multiformat freebies.

    I was going to post about the upgrade from MobiPocket 6.0.0.066 to 6.0.0.069, but it looks like I was beaten to the punch. Glad I checked first.
