Are you aware that kindles get free wifi at AT&T hotspots, such as McDonald's restaurants and some book stores and coffee shops?
Some of us aren't that lucky, to live in vicinity of abundant wi-fi access. Like if you're not living in the States, just a nameless eastern-european country.
Also, not so much point buying 3G for only Amazon cloud access. I think removing that limit is only using your hardware to it's fullest. That's what jailbreaking and homebrew is about, or am I wrong?
(Oh yeah, and I'm not planning on tethering it, or downloading vast amounts of data, I just want read my email and some blogs on the go, if I bought something already)
