Question about tablets

I'm not cool enough for a smartphone. Okay, it's not that I'm not cool enough, it's that I don't want to pay $100/ month to add a data plan to my current phone bill.

However, I would like a mobile device that I can use to play all my games on (i.e. Candy Crush, Words with Friends, etc). I was thinking about getting a tablet for this purpose, but my question is, do I need a data package to use apps on my tablet, or will a Wi-Fi connection suffice?

Anybody know the answer to this? Thanks in advance!

I do not have my tablet hooked up to cell service. It uses Wi-fi only. It means it is not portable when streaming video but it works just fine for game apps that you don't have to be constantly connected for.

I only use WiFi on my iPad and it has been fine.

It depends on where you want to use it. If you're in a place with wifi, great, but you won't be able to use it in the car, on a plane (unless they have wifi-like Southwest), any place where there is no wifi.
