You won't be able to download files, listen to music, watch video, have access to flash ... . Plus the use of the browser is quite awkward so I do not think many people would generate substantial traffic.
Unless you use tethering, which should be very easy to spot for an Amazon server, if they cared to watch for it (they definitely would once it got widespread).
Amazon has roaming agreements that are, I suspect, different from racketeering prices big telecos charge us - hapeless individual users.
