    Would be, but very doubtful. The reason the Kindle can come with "free" 3G is simply because the demand on the network is both tiny and intermittent. i.e. Only when one downloads a book. A device that enables continuous demand on the 3G network is not something that any carrier is going to allow without a LARGE subsidy from Amazon.
    Agreed.
