    Yes, with application called "Aldiko premieum" in the market. you can copy your .epub to your phone. and application will find it, and read it perfectly :), there is also another application called "kobo" enjoy.

    The basic ereader that comes with phone does. Its Kobo or something. You hit import and it auto finds. Even asks if you want to delete originals.

    I don't recommend purchasing an app for reading ebooks. FBReader is free, works with almost all ebook formats and have most features you'd expect in a reader.
    And I didn't like the in-built Reader's hub.

    My only dislike with the built in kobo is there is no day/night toggle or a way to make background background text white.

    Yeah, I've heard that iSilo has had a long history, but it's useless with all the new, better and cheaper readers around.
