I hardly use the 3G, but if I am on holiday I would use a three 3G card as it is 3Giga for 3 months with no contract. Though it will not work abroad as it is not registered, but the Kindle would then work - 3G is expensive for the three network - WHEN ABROAD.
There is a temptation to tether, but most people just would not be bothered (and there is the risk of bricking your Kindle, and being caught by Amazon), even 50Mega is enough for occasional use abroad.
BASICALLY IT IS A NOVELTY FOR MOST - OR FOR EMERGENCIES, WHICH ARE RARE.
