Does the Kindle Web Browser work in South Africa?

Posted on July 7, 2011

Yes it does. The web browser is found under the “experimental” section. It is quite limited, but it does work. On a 3G Kindle, the browser uses the free Amazon Whispernet network. If you are in the range of your WiFi network, it will use that instead. With the WiFi only Kindles you need to be connected to your WiFi first.

The Kindle comes preloaded with a number of bookmarks to Amazon, Google and the like.

Don’t expect too much from the browser, but it does work and can be very useful if you are in a bind and need to look something up, or just want to catch up on world news.
