PRC file format
Mobipocket Reader Desktop
The PRC is an eBook file format created by Mobipocket, a French company incorporated in 2000. Mobipocket started the company with the flagship eBook MOBI file format. The PRC file format is quite similar to the MOBI format used on mobile phones, Palmtop devices, and PC operating systems. However, PRC files are used exclusively for palmtop devices that support PRC or PDB extensions. The Mobipocket Reader program can be used to view PRC files on a PC. Amazon Kindle reading devices can also view eBooks with the .prc extension; so far, the file is not protected; this compatibility is possible because Amazon.com acquired Mobipocket.com in 2005.
