    Default Kindle or ipad, just for internet use?

    I want something portable to for internet use. I don't need any other applications. My phone is an old one that does not access the net nor do I want it to. Would a kindle be cheaper and do the job if I just want portable internet access?

    thanks.

    My Kindle Fire HD is working well. The data plan is cheap but you don't get much data with it so you do have to connect with WiFi hotspots whenever you can

    For internet, I would get a Nexus 7. Its cheaper then the iPad, but is super fast.

    I would do the iPad for internet use, we have the kindle fire(not newest one) and an iPad2 and I much prefer the iPad for internet use. In fact, I should have stuck with my old Kindle because I don't use it to it's full capacity.

    I tried my nieces Nexus ( say it fast ) and it is pretty awesome without the iPad cost.

    More user friendly, more oomph

    If you want a good eReader go with a Fire, if you want an all purpose mini computer get Nexus
