general questions about Kindles from a newbie

I bought a Kindle Fire; it's my first Kindle device, although I'm very familiar with Android devices and the Kindle Android app. The Fire has now piqued my interest regarding the other, e-ink Kindle devices:

1) I was led to believe that other Kindles have web browsers and/or email support, is that true? It's not mentioned in any of the Kindle's descriptions, but I'm sure I've heard people mention it.

2) Can the wireless-only Kindles work with a hotspot-enabled 3g smartphone?

3) What possible warrants the DX's $379 pricetag? Is it the global 3g? (just a rhetorical question - no need to answer)

Thanks for any insight anyone can give me.
