There are really only two remaining eBook formats, of the numerous types that were floating around some years ago.

  • The first and foremost, in terms of commercial sales, are the Kindle format(s), those being mobi, prc and azw.  Colloquially, these are called "mobi" by most people in the business.
  • The second, used by Apple, Adobe Digital Editions, Nook, Google Editions, Diesel, Kobo, etc., is epub.  Epub allows greater design flexibility than mobi, because it uses a more advanced level of html.
  • Two other formats, Palm (which is actually what's called a "wrapper") and .LIT, (which was Microsoft's attempt to gain entry into the eBook marketplace), are really not supported any longer in any significant numbers, and so we do not normally include conversion to those formats as part of our conversion quotes. Palm used a lot of formats that appear as PRC or PDB files on regular computers.
