Monthly costs for tablets?

I am comparing tablets and have heard one of the benefits of Amazon Kindle Fire is that Amazon provides the connectivity for free, so there is no ongoing cost with it. Does that mean every other tablet does have a connectivity fee? And what type of connectivity exactly, are they covering? 3g, 4g, or wifi? The main problem with the Kindle Fire is no camera, so I'm looking at the new Google Nexus 7, but I don't want to get it, only to find I have to pay another monthly service fee. I have wifi at home and 3g/wifi on my phone. I've looked at many reviews, but no one is addresssing the ongoing cost issue for the new Nexus 7. Any feedback is appreciated!

Okay, you seem very confused. If they ever say there is an ongoing fee for a tablet they probably mean paying for 3g or something like. You DON'T have to get 3g it is NOT REQUIRED, you choose the 3g model if that's what you desire(that rhymed: D). Maybe in the kindle they mean the service for amazon prime but you dont have to have that either. Also wifi is free in your house it is free everywhere that its unlocked or they say its free, wifi is not a serivice like 3g all tablets have it and it is free and standard. In my opinion you should get the nexus 7 because it seems awesome and i plan on getting it as well.
I hoped that answered your question.

The Kindle fire has only WiFi, so Amazon doesn't provide connectivity
some of the more advanced tablets have built in 3g/4g connectivity, like some of the Galaxy Tabs, iPads, etc, but you have to pay extra and will have a monthly fee.

most tablets you need to be within range of a WiFi hotspot, but then will work perfect, for free. The advantage of the Nexus 7 is that it has full access to the Play store, so you can download any app, and even have access to all the content on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
