Mobi Format Introduction:

MOBI is the format used by the MobiPocket Reader. The file extension name can be *.mobi or *.prc. The *.prc extension is used because the PalmOS doesn't support any file extensions except *.prc or *.pdb. The extension can be changed by the user to either of the accepted forms. In either case it may be DRM protected or non-DRM. Note that Mobipocket prohibits their DRM format to be used on dedicated eBook readers that support other DRM formats.

The mobi format is based on the Open eBook standard using XHTML and can include JavaScript and frames. It also supports native SQL queries to be used with embedded databases.

Mobi reader products support most Windows, Symbian, BlackBerry and Palm operating systems, but not the Android platform. Using WINE, the reader works under Linux or Mac OS X. Third-party applications like Okular and FBReader can also be used under Linux or Mac OS X, but they work only with unencrypted files.

The Amazon Kindle's AZW format is basically just the mobi format with a slightly different serial number scheme, and *.prc publications can be read directly on the Kindle. The Kindle AZW format also lacks some Mobipocket features such as JavaScript. Amazon has developed an epub to mobi converter called KindleGen.
