@Steve,

If the Kindle is hacked to be a wifi hotspot , it can certainly hit or allow high traffic. Now, I don't know exactly how much, but it can be several MBs or more depending of the site. That's what I was referring to when I made my comment. I can't imagine how someone can hit more than that using Wikipedia only.

Also, while I totally respect your opinion about using the Kindle for more than reading books or using Wikipedia, maybe emails, I think that the browser is totally useless. It's handy , but nothing more. The slow page refresh of the eink screen does not make the experience a good one.

I like o have the 3G because I can buy and download from everywhere, even when I'm visiting my family in South America. And for Wikipedia is really nice too, because Wikipedia is mostly text with a few static images.

I prefer a tablet for browsing Internet and use my Kindle 3G for reading only. Less distractions, the better.
