Kindle WiFi or Kindle WiFi +3g - what would you buy?

I am thinking of buying a Kindle for the other half for christmas.
I can't work out if it is worth the extra £40 for the 3g version as I can't see that it offers much at the moment.
I am not sure how much you can surf the web, someone mentioned to me you can browse just facebook and another couple of sites??? I am not sure this will continue to be free or if you can browse other sites?

I wouldn't need to download books on the go as I can do that as a one-off from home.

Anyone any experience of Kindle 3g or not?

I bought the Wifi version, the 3G seems pretty pointless as almost everywhere has a Wifi Point these days.

So one vote for each here so far.

ooh is the kindle worth getting though, there was a deal posted for it (wasnt a deal as such!) and it got real cold and ppl wer saying its a pile of crap!
#4
I thought that deal went cold because it wasn't really a deal as it is\has always been the same price?
Nothing to do with the product? I could be wrong and I will go and have another look.
#5
the battery lasts longer on the non 3g one, that was the selling point for me

yeah but they were dissing the product as well? i dunno i ask only because hubby wants one...but im thinking its a novelty..surely a book is more fun to read then a tablet? i dunno...i see it as waste of money but he says he will use it....so im like..is it a good gadget or not? hmmm

With the WiFi turned off the battery life is 1 month for both, according to Amazon.
The 3G does have a worse battery live 10 days instead of 3 weeks if it is turned on, but I assume you would normally have it turned off?

I'd get the 3G one. My personal experience when i was in portugal you can download books online while on holiday for free or browse the internet, although its limited.

The battery life is as long as the wifi one if you turn the 3G off surely?

There weren't many comments at all on the HotUkDeals threads I looked at. Certainly gets good reviews elsewhere though (especially on Amazon - of course)

Unless anything else springs to mind in the next few weeks I think I will go for the 3G version.
