Sony Converts Its Entire eBook Store to EPUB Format

Sony today announced its plan to convert its eBook store to the industry-standard EPUB format by the end of the year.
Adopting an industry-standard format and Adobe Content Server 4 (ACS4), a cross platform server software solution that copy protects downloadable eBooks, allows Sony to make its eBook store compatible with multiple devices and its Reader devices open to multiple sources for content.
Sony historically was not fast to adopt standards. Their move to use EPUB format for the entire Sony eBook store is therefore remarkable.

"Our intention is to lead by example," said Steve Haber, president of Sony’s Digital Reading Business Division. "Our Readers have long supported industry-standard formats such as EPUB and PDF. Now, what is quickly becoming the de facto standard for eBooks will be available in our store."

Sony just announced the more affordable eBook Readers PRS-300 and PRS-600 that of course support EPUB.
