The Next2 only connects to the internet through a wireless internet router. If you do not have a wireless router, you won't be able to use the internet on the Next2.

If you do not have internet service at your home (DLS or Cable Internet) you will have to arrange for it through your phone company or cable company, and yes that will cost you. This will not work with dialup internet connections.

The Next2 comes with Borders books built in. Using the Borders app and Adobe Digital Editions you can purchase books or download free books right from your Next2.

You can also download the 'eReader Pro' app from the Fictionwise web site and and purchase/download/read books with their software. Go to www.ereader.com to download eReader Pro. This app lets you read .pdb format books where Borders doesn't.

Kindle and Nook software do not install on Next2 because of the version of Android currently installed. That may change if Nextbook updates the software for the Next2.

You can either wait for the iPad CDMA version to be released or any one of the many soon to be released tablets. Motorola is supposed to have a Verizon tablet by March, and looks to be an iPad killer for sure.

The Next2 is NOT a phone and has no wireless connectivity other than wireless intenet like you have at home or the local coffee shop, etc.

This particular device does not support tethering. You can purchase a MiFi if you want to always have connectivity but this isn't an iPad, its just nice andriod tablet.

There is a Windows program made by Fonix called "iSpeak". You can use it to "read" a text file and save it as an MP3. then you can copy the file to your eBook reader or tablet and Voila!
it's easy to use, it's free... and did I mention that it was easy to use?

The included Borders app reads epub, pdf, and txt formats. People report they are able to download books from the library, I haven't tried yet.

If you have books in .pdb format, download the Android app from ereader.com to read them. I like their store better anyway, don't have to deal with Adobe Digital Editions garbage like with the copy protected Borders books.

I haven't found an app for library books for Android 1.5. They may be out there, I just haven't found them. The Borders store has 1000s of free classics. You can also download an app called Aldiko to read ePub, free classic books from Feedbooks.com.

I've used it for Facebook. It's connected without problems at home and public Wi-Fi spots. Just make sure you have a wireless router, you know what kind of security you set up on the network AND you know the password. Also check the router settings to make sure your SSID is broadcasting.

answer 3
The onscreen keyboard is OK for emails, entering notes into a note program, etc. It is NOT suitable for typing long letters or other documents.

Next2 has a 'resistive' keyboard vs a 'capacitive' keyboard found on all the newer phones and more expensive tablets. It is not as responsive (slow) and less accurate than a capacitive screen, so do not recommend it for serious content creation.

Come on, people, this is a cheap 'tablet' and is intended for reading books/news and light intenet use, as well as listen to your music or view your pictures or some video.The Next2 is being sold as an eReader, and should be listed by Walmart in that catagory, not the 'tablet' catagory where it is now. If you want an iPad or Galaxy Tab, then buy one, this will not do everything either one of them do and never will. It is an inexpensive book reader that happens to do a few other things pretty well.

answer 2
It works through a wireless router. There have been a few reports of Next2 not connecting to some older wireless routers, though. Also, your router MUST be broadcasting it's SSID (netowork name) for the device to see it. If it is a secured network (SHOULD BE, if it isn't, DO IT) you will be asked to enter the password to connect.

Keyboard - Yes, a keyboard pops up in either portrait or landscape mode whenever a text box is tapped. Landscape mode is much bigger and easier to use, so rotate the screen if possible. (not all apps will rotate, including the Next2 HOME screen)

It connects to Wi-Fi at hot spots or at home if you have a B/G or N wireless router.
