This would be kind of neat. I would imagine you would base the numbers on the hardcover (assuming the ebook gets released at about the same time).

I don't see why you can't have both the 'markers' that stay constant and also some sort of page number that shows a definitive number of pages (and what page you are on) that changes with font/margin/device differences.

Just bought the wife a K3 (which is the main reason I was checking out kindle on the iphone) so, I will see how that goes. It really does look like a pretty slick device. Plus based on the picture on Amazon, it looks like the % is shown, so that is something.

edit: and looking at the k3 pictures more, it does look like they display the last location number (which the iphone app does not do), so that in combination of displaying my current location (and the % complete) is pretty much all I need. Nice.
