Amazon to allow ePub ebooks on the Kindle e-Reader | Good E-Reader Blog – ebook Reader and Tablet PC News:

The below snippet is from the Good E-Reader blog, and there is enough chatter on the Internet to suggest Amazon is very soon going to acknowledge that the ePub format is by far the format of choice among the e-reading public as well as the publishing industry. This can only be good news because we desperately need some form of formatting standard if e-books are to truly become the leading standard of a book in the publishing trade. 

“We have some rather breaking news with online giant Amazon and their highly successful line of Kindle e-readers. It seems many publishers have been told by the company that in the near-future, they should be submitting their books to Amazon in EPUB format and not exclusively MOBI. They also went on to let us know that Amazon was indeed planning something BIG and that soon the Kindle ereader will have the full capability to read ePub books. This news has been confirmed by at least 4 publishing companies we have spoken with during the last few days.”
