    Here is a problem I have encountered - the free wifi at a retail establishments is sometimes very very slow - it is hit or miss. I get the wifi signal, but then the device cannot connect. I have this problem at my gym. Free wifi, but, so inadequate as to be unusable. So I don't think I am able to depend on it. My library has great free wifi.

    I have a Kindle Fire and you can get onto the Internet with it.

    I have purchased 3 Kindles and have love, love, loved them. I surf the web, read the QB, do my banking on them. Make sure you don't buy the reader, then you won't be able to search the web. Good luck in your decision.

    I got a used Samsung table 8" mdl 5110. It can connect to my internet as well as those at the fast food joints free (if they have free internet). I can read from it using one of the many book apps, watch videos, read my emails and search the internet. When searching for a tablet, some use only bluetooth, some use only wi-fi and some use both. Mine uses both so I was lucky as I wasn't aware of this option.

    It might depend on the Kindle you have, I get internet, you tube, Missouri Star videos etc on mine as well as many games. Check out the various features on both. I love the customer service I get from Amazon with my Kindle, I have the instant chat feature and they can't see you but you can see them and they show you step by step what to do to fix what ever problem you have. When they are advising you what to do they circle the area where you are to do whatever it is they are asking you to do. They are also very friendly and know what they are doing.
