If you thought you would be able to happily surf the web on your new Kindle Touch 3G device you might be a little disappoint to learn that Amazon is no longer offering an open 3G web access through its new Kindle Touch 3G reader.
When the new Kindle Touch 3G was launched last week there was a little confusion over the wording used to explain the web surfing features of the new device, which said “experimental web browsing is available via Wi-Fi.”
After a lot of speculation on the Kindle forums Amazon has now clarified the situation explaining:
“We apologize for the confusion. Our new Kindle Touch 3G enables you to connect to the Kindle Store, download books and periodicals, and access Wikipedia – all over 3G or Wi-Fi. Experimental web browsing (outside of Wikipedia) on Kindle Touch 3G is only available over Wi-Fi,”
“Our Kindle Keyboard 3G will continue to offer experimental web browsing over 3G or Wi-Fi.”
Websites you will be able to surf via 3G include Kindle Store and browsing Wikipedia.
