Question

now that I know about Wifi...

If u can go on the internet and use lets say Facebook...how do you interact with this webpage....at home I'm use to a keyboard...how would I type on this ereader ? or should I just start shopping around for a Laptop ? And with a Laptop...are they set up w/wifi also ? So sorry my questions are probably so simple for most people...but I don't own many electronics of this nature.

You can type the same way as you do on an iphone or any phone that has internet access. I don't recommend this though. It has very few things you can do on FB. I can only read my page , can't leave comments, go to other's pages etc...

The Pandagital has a keyboard which opens up at the bottom of the screen when you want to type something. You need a fingernail to type a letter and then sometimes it is hit or miss. So, yes you can use Facebook and update it, but it's a slower process.
You may be happier with a laptop. Most have wifi built it. The bonus with a laptop or any computer is that you can go to B&N, Amazon, Borders websites and download their ereader software and you can read books on your computer.

For Facebook this only does the most simple interaction. There are no flash games, so you can't play Farmville and the like. The e-reader has an on-screen typewriter. When you tap on a line where you would type, then a little keyboard pops up on the screen and you can type with it.
This does have Wi-Fi, so you can use it for free from your local restaurants, but you can also use it on a home network too. However, there is no 3G like the iPad, so you will need a computer at home if you want to set this up on a network.
I don't know what your price range is but a lot depends on what you are looking for. If you are wanting something simple that you can get online from time to time (not something for daily use) then the reader isn't bad. If you want something where you can shop, type word documents, or do any heavy browsing, or gaming, I'd recommend a laptop. Wal-mart has a great selection of laptops (no I'm not an employee) but again, it depends on your situation. If you want something less than 300 - 400 dollars, then you probably won't find a laptop that would make you very happy. I hope this helps some!

I use the mobile page of Facebook on my iPhone and my Pandigital Novel. It has a keyboard that you can use a provided stylus (pen like instrument) to tap the keys or you can use your fingernail. My favorite computing device is a Netbook (smaller than a laptop). The netbook will do a LOT more than the Pandigital Novel can do.

Not a problem. When you want to type anything just tap on that section. A keyboard will pop up and just use a pen cap to type

This doesn't have 3G. It has wi-fi so any of your fast food places that offer wi-fi don't charge for you to connect.
As for the apps, you have to upgrade your OS to Android (can be done from Pandigital's site), and you can download any Android application, many/most of which are freeware.

It depends. You can get free wi-fi at many places if you don't have it at home, but this device doesn't supply it. It only provides a way to access the internet.
