I just tested turning my wifi off.

I am able to read the downloaded book on my iPad but of course, I can't browse my collection.

So for reading a book, there is no additional bandwidth I believe. The data or ebook file is being kept locally.

The question is .. will this be the beginning of the end for Kindle on iOs? Because I must admit, Kindle for iOs is a very mature and nice app. A browser is a very clever idea, but limited on some aspects anyway. On Kindle for iOs I can even use the dictionary while being offline. I don't see a dictionary using web browser alternative.
