Would a web cam work through the same USB connection of Kindle Fire?

I’m researching a Kindle Fire. I see that you can charge the battery by plugging it into USB on your computer. Would a web cam work through the same USB connection? Is there a USB port to plug into the device or is it just a charging wire that has a USB plug at the end like my cell phone?

Trying to decide if I should just stick with the laptop for web stuff and get a simple e-reader for the book purposes. If the Kindle can do both then one less thing to travel with, right?

Best Answer

The USB from the computer charges and is used to transfer things like books to the Kindle Fire. It works similar to putting data on a flashdrive. There isn’t any way to talk on skype since there is no audio input.

    I think I’ll go with the the basic model for an e-reader and stick with the laptop for my internet endeavors.
    Thanks!
