WiFi vs 3G Kindle
WiFi and 3g Kindle are different because WiFi requires a wireless connection to download from Amazon or other websites. The 3G Kindle gets connected to Amazon’s Whispernet (A wireless plan to browse the Amazon store to browse downloads in a single click) without WiFi. The only requirement is it needs to be in a cellular range.
WiFi Kindle has a high-resolution display and gives the feel of paper reading. The screen has no glare, even during the bright sunlight. The adjustable light makes reading possible 24 by 7.
If your phone can access the internet, the 3G Kindle connects to Whispernet, and the storage options are a click away. It is slightly heavier than the WiFi Kindle, which is not noticeable.
