Yes, I've been considering the cheaper Kindle with wifi (no 3g) and thought it would be nice if the BB's data (3g) could be used with it if there were no wifi for either of them. But I'd think the kindle would need an app like tether and I don't think kindle does apps.
Just got the new 3G Kindle and it's great! Fortunately, I also have a MiFi, so I'm good to go on the road.
Even if the BB could be used as a hotspot (rumored to be included in the Storm 2 refresh), the MiFi would still be a better choice for me. I also use it at home with a CradlePoint router so I don't need cable or DSL.

Don't know if Kindle has Bluetooth, but there could probably be a 2-part app (one on the server side, another on the client side) to make the BB into a Bluetooth "hotspot" so nearby friends can share your 3G connection. Probably difficult...
