    Not true. I just tested it by dragging on of my drm-free .mobi books to the kindle directory and it is right there with the rest of the kindle library and plays just fine.

    It think so. Let me try and test it.....hmmm now that I look at it, I'm not seeing that you can side-load into the native google book reader....I may not be seeing the proper directory or place though.

    I won't use the kindle app until It accepts open formats.

    Figured that out last night -- I'm in need of the "Last Page Read SYNC" feature and it appears that the Kindle app does it better than the Nook from my limited testing -- not as seamless as Ibooks but looks to work. Converted several of my Epub's with Calibre to mobi and will try to load them on the Xoom when it arrives today.

    Or just leave them epub and use the Aldiko reader app. :)

    Congratulations on the Xoom!!!

    Aldiko is a standalone reader no syncing I'm aware of.

    Doh -- If I'm going to be able to use these over my ipad's - I need them to sync between Phone/Tablet. I'm warming to the Kindle App now that I know I can get my Epub's on it in the form of Mobi's -- just need to update Calibre so it will sync and have covers.

    I was refering to the "native" Google reader app and there is no way to side load a mobi file that I have found.
