There is also ZLIB, but ZLIB is actually just an implementation of DEFLATE, which is the same compression that GZIP uses.
GZIP may not have the best compression in the world, but it is well suited to stream processing and is supported by plug-ins almost everywhere I believe, so I think it is the best choice for you to investigate.

Zip files are not supported natively on the device. There have been a number of Threads about processing zip files, most people seem to end up with ZipME, but that did not work for me. And I think it is slow. But search the forum, there are a number of Threads that discuss this already, no point repeating them.
