How recent?  I got mine literally a month ago, and I don't see any sign of
ePub support.  Although maybe it just doesn't advertise; I suppose I
should actually try it.

I know it supports PDF, but PDF is kind of useless for portable devices.

It doesn't need to be an either/or decision.  Once you have either ePub or
MOBI, I believe there are existing tools, like Calibre, to convert, even
if the publication chain can't generate either from the start.
