To add to Meya's report: You can reasonably expect battery issues to be in your near future too as their lifetime is finite. Batteries are not considered user replaceable on these devices and Amazon offers no repair services or official sources for spare parts.
They run a very old version of Amazon's modified Android system and have unpatchable security flaws.
NOTE: I do NOT speak for or represent Amazon in any fashion. This is a customer to customer forum.

Did Amazon make the fire hdx 7 with this capability? If so can you only connect to Amazon and Wikipedia? TY
It's the B&W Kindles, not the Fires that can only connect to Wikipedia, Amazon and use the instant Translation function via 3G. Some of the earlier models (Kindle 1, Kindle 2/DX and possibly the Kindle Keyboard could access a bit more via the Experimental Browser.
