Yes, that was exactly my point. Although web browsing isn't really very feasible with the Kindle, if someone were to come up with a way of using a Kindle as a cellular modem for a laptop, the almost certain result is that the free service would instantly disappear. It would be a case of one person spoiling it for everyone else.
