If you get a 3G Kindle then it uses the mobile phone network to download books. Need access to a computer to set up an Amazon account first of course as the Kindle needs to be registered to an Amazon account.

You can always access the kindle store through smartphones (NOT the app, must use web application) and set-up account on there then when you purchase a book on there it will 'whispersync' straight to the kindle - no need to plug in but you'd still need WiFi access for that.

Otherwise, Damaskcat is right, 3G is the way to go.

You can also use the free wifi in Waterstone stores to download books.
