Yes, if you're in the US or UK. Maybe in other countries. I think in some countries you're limited to a few web sites, but you're not limited in the US or UK.

AT & T in the US, Vodafone in the UK. Don't know about anywhere else.

Gmail works (personally I prefer the HTML-only version on the Kindle, though the full version does work)

For maps, I have http://www.kindlemap.net (which shows Google maps in a Kindle-friendly format) and http://maps.google.com/m (mobile version of Google Maps) bookmarked. Both work, but I haven't used them enough to decide which I prefer.

I'd also suggest bookmarking http://www.google.com/gwt/n - it'll attempt to convert any web page into a mobile-friendly version.

I find the browser really quite useful, but then my phone's browser is rubbish, as is pretty much everything else on the phone Most people with good smartphones seem to prefer browsing on their phone.
