The recent low price on Kindle DX got me thinking along the lines of having a 3G KIndle since all DX's are 3G and I was seriously considering getting one at the $189 price point that expired a few days ago. The 3G feature had never interested me before but now that the sale price on the DX is no longer, I would like to get a Paperwhite. I know its 3G is only usable for accessing Wikipedia and a translation feature. Translation doesn't interest me but the 24/7 Wikipedia access does.
What are the ins an outs of using Wikipedia on a Kindle? Is access limited to 50 MB a month? If so, how much usage is that in terms of, lets say, hours of accessing Wikipedia? Or is the access to Wikipedia unlimited? Can you copy, say, an article and send it to the Kindle as a pdf while browing in 3G? If you click on a link in Wikipedia will the Kindle go there in 3G?
I would value the 3G even though it is only applicable to Wikipedia as long as the usage limit would be fairly generous. It seems like the ideal value-added feature to complement reading and studying. I do have a smartphone but no data plan. I want a Paperwhite for pure reading in any location with minimal distractions.
