Does it make sense to take the option of 3G for the extra 50$?
I'm going to take through ebaytoday. They have an office in America that they order. In case I, in Russia, free 3G?

Does anyone have experience using kindle, a share worth$ 50 on 3G?

I do not agree with the previous speakers. Using 3G on both Graphite Bindlach (DX and неDX), it is a bit easier (faster is browser reflow), but overall it was extremely useful on both devices. Let me explain:
-using the browser upload .mobi. Free. flibusta sites can give V. MOBI, which allows not to care about concerning the download just of books (not those in .pdf).
-in the interface there is a quick search in the wiki. Yes, he is looking at the English wiki, but don't think for someone on Habre it is a problem.
-in addition, there is a wonderful service ereadups.com formatting an article from Wikipedia in a very pretty .mobi and give it immediately to download. again, to be able to do it wherever there is cellular network — very nice.
-because kindle has no concept of "roaming", and if you want the bucks to check my email while abroad — the same gmeyl in the embedded browser works.
-easier to buy books from Amazon (if you feel like it) — they just fall on the reader as soon as it is connected to the Internet.
-"disable 3G" Amazon can't, because this is one of the claimed features of the reader. another thing is that Amazon will ban the hackers trying to use the Internet from the desktop — it is a violation of the EULA.

In Ukraine, in Kiev used — has free 3G. Also a friend from Moldova, a friend said that the problems with 3G at all.
\r
The system they have is this: the Kindle directly agreed with the mobile operators to provide free 3G and, accordingly, they will pay for it. Why Russia catches also wherever there is cellular network.
\r
But don't think that the 3G Kindle will be a replacement for the Internet. He is not comfortable, move the cursor with the joystick that clicks. Very often the cursor gets to the line and there are certain problems.

3G works only need it rarely. To go to the Internet uncomfortable, and can advance to pump. Vote for the version without 3G.

Plus all the shortcomings, there is no guarantee that 3G will always work, rather, work that he would, but it's possible that amazon may limit access, for example, only to its Kindle Store for message traffic, as I understand it, it passes through their servers (if I'm wrong, please correct).
\r
Although, frankly, sometimes you want to have access to places where no wi-fi, though surfing on a kindle and not very comfortable, but read the same Habr.
\r
In the end, if the extra 50$ you do not strain, take the 3G, but to use it you'll most likely rarely (except at first).

It does not benefit from so much. The browser is inconvenient, and buying through the Kindle store are not all =)

The traffic really goes through them. and inside kindle Me.

Will share their experiences. Used 3g I on the strength of two weeks. Still, I bought the device for books, not for the web, ie throwing a portion of books, the Internet, I do not need, until I actually read it. A couple of times in the metro mail checked, and then more for ping.
There are two potential applications that have so far come to mind:
*I still have one session where you may need something to watch in the faculty wiki and the device to do it easier than with your phone
*Periodically I go to a fairly remote town in Ukraine, Internet cafes he has never been there, all use 3g, which is wonderfully there. In this case the reader, I think, useful, because gprs rates and gprs roaming there not the most humane
