Creating ePubs for the iPhone................

competitor is Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch. There are several free eBook readers available from Apple’s App Store (Stanza, Kindle for the iPhone, B&N eReader, and others). This is potentially a huge market because Apple recently announced that there are now 30 million iPhones and 20 million iPod Touches. Most of these readers can read ePub files directly.
