Limited budget tablet with browsing and Skype

My student granddaughter is looking for a modestly priced tablet to be used for web browsing (by wi fi), Skype (Travelling to Egypt soon) and usual music etc. iPad a bit over budget.7'' Nexus any good? Or Kindle Fire - do they use internet? She has a Samsung phone but does not want to trigger web charges.

Thanks for replies so far. She is not taking her phone for the reason Kenny01 suggests.

I've just bought two of these for the children for Christmas. Only had a little play with one so I can't really say how good they are. First impression is OK though. Amazon. Ordered 26 Nov and delivered today. The reviews seem to favour it. Good hunting.
