    I keep reading that the Kindle 3G can be used to pick up email and browse the web for free within Europe. Is that correct - does anyone use this service

    Cheers

    Yes, & it works, but is slow to use with no mousepad. Worked with Edge when no 3G signal.
    The new touchscreen may be better though.

    Just do a search on Kindle, it's all in here. The last Big Debate was about a month ago.

    I found that it wouldn't open e-mail that requires multiple windows ie.AOL
    Otherwise it is usable to surf etc-albeit a tads slow and clunky.
