Download and save MOBI files to Kindle over 3g?
Hi everyone, I'm looking for a setup to deliver content automatically from my computer to my kindle DXG. I would happily pay $.15 per mb, but I'm not in the US and it's $.99 per MB, a bit too much I think.
Now, I can manage to get a lot of my "read later" content from Instapaper, and the URL www.instapaper.com/mobi (WHEN LOGGED ON...) directly downloads a mobi file to my browser. There was a trick for project guttenberg to have the books downloaded to the kindle, anyone knows if that can be done with other sites? It would save me connecting and copying the files...

I could just use the Calibre content-server, but the Kindle browser really blows for searching/browsing websites.

I have the international 3G version and I the download of mobi files via the Kindle browser directly onto the Kindle does not work for me. E.g. I am surfing at getabstract.com or manybooks.net, click the mobi download link - Kindle asks me if I am sure & that the book will appear on my home screen after downloading, but still after a few minutes there is nothing there.

Yeah. Despite what the cell carriers say, 3G generally isn't as blazingly fast as they claim. Good that its working.
