Kindle 3g as modem?

Now I have my new Kindle keyboard with added 3G it struck me that it may be possible somehow to use the Kindle as a tethered modem with a laptop. I'm afraid my technical knowledge is minimal so wondered whether anybody had investigated this?

Yes, it's been investigated and the answer it is illegal.

Not sure under which law (and in which countries) it would be illegal as the Kindle already has a browser and full internet capability.
