But in fact the table contains only 59 countries, Ukraine and Russia have been taken out.

Little.Egret, thanks for catching that. I was looking at the table from 2010, which had 59 countries too, before Russia and the Ukraine were added (until recently).

I've updated the page tonight.

The web browser was ALWAYS described as "experimental". Right from the very first Kindle with Internet access.

At least they have left it free-3G and not restricted to just the kindle store and wikipedia.

I managed to go over the 50mb cap a couple of months ago when I was on a 3 week overseas holiday.

A message box appeared on my K3 that said I had exceeded this monthly limit and could now only access via wifi or 3g to the kindle store only. It also gave me a 48hr grace period that covered me for the rest of the month.

I've never exceeded this limit with my dxg probably because I leave the dxg browser in Basic Mode and disable pictures. With my K3 keyboard I did not do this and it's probably why I hit this limit.

Cheers,
Tom
