What's the diff?

A lot!

An Ebook is a generic term that refers to any digital or electronic version of a document, including:

  • Acrobat PDF file
  • EPUB 2 or EPUB 3
  • DPS Adobe Digital Publishing Suite
  • Kindle proprietary KF8 and MOBI files

The EUPB format is a non-proprietary industry-standard file format that was developed by IDPF (International Digital Publishing Forum, www.idpf.org). It's fairly universal and EPUB files can be read on nearly every type or brand of device as long it has the correct software.

This class covers this in more detail.
