New Reader Mobile SDK Announced

Adobe today announced the new Reader Mobile SDK, which supports PDF, EPUB and Adobe Content Server DRM. We also announced five new licensees planning to ship enabled solutions this year, including Lexcycle (Stanza), Bookeen (Cybook), iRex Technologies (Iliad), Polymer Vision (Readius) and Spring Design. This is a really big step forward in our strategy for enabling digital publishing with an open platfrom that’s fully interoperable across PCs and devices. Much more to come, but meantime additional information (including an inquiry form for prospective licensees) on the new Adobe Developer Connection Reader Mobile site.

Adobe eBook support coming to iPhone via Stanza

Lexcycle announced today at O’Reilly Tools of Change that they are incorporated support for Adobe EPUB and PDF eBooks into the Stanza reader for iPhone, with support for Adobe Content Server DRM. This is a great step forward for our vision of enabling consumers to enjoy content on whatever device they choose, and publishers distributing EPUB or PDF via Adobe Content Server will gain significant additional reach, with no additional work. Lots more to come soon on this, and on other mobile device partnerships.
