Amazon crimps free Kindle 3G surfing

Re: The problem has been tethering

@RICHTO, don't know why you'd be so adamant it wasn't so. I'll give you one example. Here's a guy bragging about tethering his Kindle and taking 46 G that way at the time (late February)

Amazon Kindle DX

A couple of corrections

The Kindle web browser does work globally from any book being read to Wikipedia, and it's not bad for text-focused sites or mobile-unit optimized ones for free, 24/7.

TXT files never have to go to Amazon for conversion. I just move them over to the Kindle.

It's directly supported.

WORD doc files, yes, would need the mailed conversion.
