Ask HN: How much does it cost to browse the web on a Kindle 3?

After feeling disgusted over the prices of wireless data packages in the US, I noticed Amazon is offering its Kindle 3 with "Free 3G" access. Does that mean I can really browse the web anywhere for free, or only download purchased books over 3G? Also, does the experimental web browser support rich web apps like Google Maps and Gmail?

it doesn't support rich apps, and you can only browse wikipedia on 3g.

Are you sure? I just found this saying you can browse anything: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090506230833AA...

If I'm reading it correctly, it sounds like the browser still works in the US.

That article refers to Kindle 2.
