I don’t use an Android. But I felt amiss not to have a section in Twi-Mobile. If you are an Android user and have info to add or correct I’d welcome your comments.

There are a ton of eBook reader clients out for Android – want to see a list? There are over 20 listed at this forum post at Mobileread. The biggies like Kindle, nook, and eBooks by Kobo are available.

From reviews it seems that the best dedicated reader client for Android is FBReader.

All of the ones mentioned above read epub files, except for the Kindle client of course which will require mobi or prc files. If you are a Kindle user this is still the way to go as apparently if you sync your Kindle and Android often you will be able to track your progress and have it synced between devices. In that case though you would need to go to the Kindle section of Twi-Mobile.
