The Fire is WiFi only. There are eInk Kindles that support 3G and WiFi.

If a device has wi-fi in the name, it's safe to assume that it's a device that requires wi-fi.

For the e-ink kindles once you register by wifi (starbucks for example) can't you do most things by transfer from computer?

The Kindle Keyboard will download books via 3G and allow you to do limited surfing of the net over 3G

The Touch 3G/wi-fi will allow you to download books and go to wikipedia and google translate via 3G, but EVERYTHING else needs a wi-fi connection.

You can download books without a wi-fi connection. Read

The Kindle DX is 3G-only, the Kindle Keyboard has an option for 3G as well as Wi-Fi. The Keyboard (currently) is not restricted to just Amazon and Wikipedia over 3G.

If you will be doing much web surfing and need 3G, you probably won't be happy with the slow speed and frequent crashes. Following a link on a web page is often too much for it. If you just want to Google something simple, it will do OK. Others have been able to check web-based email, but I was never able to navigate to the password box on mine.
