    Hello everyone,

    I would firstly like to express how grateful I am to anybody who has the patience to answer this techno-reject and her stupid questions

    So, looking to purchase a bog standard Kindle, the ones for £69 .. Can anybody with this model tell me; can you access the internet? I.e. emails? facebook? I'm travelling abroad in 10 days so would be taking it with me to download travel guides and hopefully as a device to contact home. Don't really want to spend £69 on the thing if its just used for books, however..

    Thank you

    The basic Kindle does have a web browser, however to call is basic is an understatement. The key limiting factor here is the lack of a touch based interface, with the buttons being the only inputs browsing is not going to be a pleasant experience.
