The problem Kris runs against is that to determine the book length, he would have to open and read the book, paginate it, etc, probably a lengthy process.

In a proprietary device, you can do whatever you want.

As I understand it, Apple's terms forbid this in the background, though I see iBooks clearly doing exactly that in the background. Change the font size, and iBooks does it again, in the background, and calculates the new number of pages.

I guess Apple cheats......
