Amazon Cracking Down on Kindle Web Browsing?

If you own a Kindle 3G, it looks like your days of free, unlimited web browsing are over. According to some reports, users are starting to receive 3G bandwidth cap warnings. That’s gotta suck.

Apparently users were browsing with the e-book reader as they normally would and suddenly they got warnings letting them know that they had hit their 50MB monthly limit.

After that, they received another notification telling them that they’d be able to surf for another 24 hours, but after that period, they will only be able to use the 3G to access, Wikipedia and the Kindle Store. If they want to go anywhere else they would have to do it over WiFi. The limit was in place before, but now they have started enforcing it. If you use the kindle to surf the web, then you are out of luck.
