MOBI eBook Format MOBI Converter
The MOBI ebook format was developed by the French company Mobipocket in 2000. MOBI files were intended to be used on mobile phones, computers and personal digital assistants (PDAs), which were popular in the 1990s and early 2000s before the arrival of smartphones. Unlike EPUB files, MOBI files were protected by Digital Rights Management, making it harder for the contents to be copied and shared.
Amazon bought Mobipocket in 2005. The company retired the MOBI format and support for it in 2016 after developing the AZW and AZW3 formats for the Kindle. However, you can still read MOBI files on Kindle devices and with the Calibre ebook application. You can also get specific MOBI-reader software. If you use an ereader that doesn’t recognise MOBI files, you may need to use a tool like Zamzar to convert them into another format like EPUB.
PRC eBook Format PRC Converter
The PRC file format is also known as a Mobipocket ebook file. However, unlike the MOBI format, PRC was specifically designed for Palm devices. Palm, Inc. was a technology company that made personal digital assistant (PDA) devices, like the PalmPilot, in the 1990s and 2000s. Just like the MOBI format, PRC files contained ebook text, as well as code for formatting and layout so that ereader programs would display the text correctly.
PRC files could also include digital rights management protection. This was already available for MOBI and AZW Kindle files but had not been possible with Palm’s PDB and PML formats. Another way that the PRC format improved on PDB and PML was that readers could add annotations and bookmarks to their ebooks. Palm devices are not made anymore. However, because the PRC format was based on MOBI, you can open the files with Kindle applications and devices, as well as with Calibre, Geometer Plus FBReader and Cool Reader.
