- Kindle users help!
Wifi is the means of connecting to the internet. It means you have to have a wireless network nearby – your house, a coffee shop etc. 3G means you can connect to the internet anywhere. Helpful if you are on holiday, on a beach, on a train, at an airport where they charge you through the nose for wifi etc.
Once you’re on, you can visit any website, but browsing on a kindle is not something you’d do for fun (unless it’s a Kindle Fire) – too slow. You can get stuff in a pinch though which can still be useful.
My dad uses his kindle for browsing stuff like lottery numbers etc. Although he just got a smartphone so I don’t think he’ll continue doing so 🙂Posted 4 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
Note though you can only buy books from Amazon (well that’s not strictly true if you have a piece of free software called Calibre and have a fiddle with a few settings).
Even with Calibre you cannot buy books directly from the Kindle from anywhere but Amazon.

I think you can email docs like PDFs etc. to your Kindle’s “email address”. I guess Calibre can send them there too. Not tried it with Singletrack but I reckon it’s possible.
Another vote for the paperwhite model, although my missus is a bit disappointed with the screen having some a darker patches on it.
