You do Bookeen a disservice in your assertion that they couldn't add a page count should they wish to have done. Given the fundamental flaw in page counting in the Mobi "engine" (which they have no control over) the decision not to display (meaningless) page numbers was the right one to take, IMHO.
Useless? That's your opinion, Harry. Maybe Bookeen could make page count optional? Not making it available means there are lots of people without that option.

Right now, I have the trouble to use the "go to..." option to know how many "pages" the ebook has with the current font type&size settings, for example.

Even if not accurate, it's a lot more accurate than a simple bar in the bottom.

Can't Bookeen implement it, even if making it optional?
