Kindle Touch Does Not Support 3G Browsing

Mashable points out that, according to a post at Amazon’s Customer Discussions forums, the new Kindle Touch 3G model won’t support browsing on 3G. This means that if you were hoping to get free web browsing out of the house, you’re sadly mistaken. If you want to use the “experimental web browsing” included with your Kindle Touch, then you’re going to have to stay within the limits of a WiFi network. This doesn’t mean that all hope is lost, however, since there are a lot of great things that can be done by hacking – though it’s quite unlikely.

Even though there is no browsing capability on 3G, there is the capability of downloading as many books as you want for free. However, this is the only function that the device can perform using a 3G network.

So, if you wanted 3G browsing, buy a real tablet or a Kindle Keyboard 3G – which does support experimental browsing over 3G. Don’t buy a Kindle Fire either, because they’re WiFi-only as well – which is awfully strange.
