    hey guys,

    it says that a kindle has its own free wifi connection, anyone use this? also can it be used for IM's like AIM etc with its browser?

    I'm keen on getting the small one, but im not from the states though it says the wifi thing works even for here. Just wanted to ask fellow bhatters if it's worth it for reading and hopefully a bit of browsing and checking! :D

    Thanks!

    Let me know.

    You can browse the internet at least stateside with it and it works quite well. I haven't tried it abroad yet. I don't think there's an easy way to tether it or anything. It's definitely a book first and a browser a fairly distant second. But decent enuf for catching up on blogs etc.
