There’s been a lot of discussion going on at the Kindle forum about the 3G capabilities of the new Kindle’s.

Here’s Amazon’s statement:
“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.”

So it now appears that the Kindle 3G does not give you full 3G access to any website. Anything outside of Amazon or Wikipedia will only work over WIFI. This is an important consideration.
