They have an "experimental" browser. It's handy to have in a pinch to get a book from somewhere other than amazon, but I certainly wouldn't want to use it for general browsing. I'd expect there's a good split between those who like it and those who don't though, so you may find it's perfectly fine.

2) Can the wireless-only Kindles work with a hotspot-enabled 3g smartphone?
If a phone can act as a wifi hotspot, I see no reason any wifi device wouldn't work with it, whilst I've not tried it, the kindle should be fine.

3) What possible warrants the DX's $379 pricetag?
No idea, but a guess would be the size of the eInk display or perhaps the with it been more suited for reading text books which are generally more costly, amazon figure a higher price will be paid. Pure speculation though.
