Amazon Kindle Touch 3G can't browse the web over 3G

via <a href=""></a>

If you were hoping to use the Kindle Touch 3G's free data access as a way to beat those nasty roaming charges while traveling abroad, you're out of luck. The Kindle team writes on Amazon's forums that the Touch 3G will no longer offer experimental web browsing access on 3G (aside from Wikipedia). Yes, you'll still be able to browse the Kindle Store and download books, but 3G email and web surfing will only work on the older Kindle 3 3G models. Of course, you'll still have access to the Kindle's experimental web browsing over WiFi on all models, but the Kindle Keyboard 3G's attractiveness as a cheap global web browser gives it a bit more life in Amazon's e-reader lineup.
