Well, one of my great hopes for the Kindle is that Amazon "gets it" and will engage in a active and short development cycle that produces frequent software updates and new features, unlike Sony who never seems to update software, or Apple who actively use it encourage people to replace their hardware twice a year :P

On the page number issue, Amazon clearly felt that the most important thing was for locations to be tied to the content, and so they produced a numbering scheme that's independent of page size, font size, etc. There are many people who clearly also want a numeric "you are on page 153 of 482 at this font size" indication. This solves an entirely different problem than the one the current numbering system does.
