    I know that QR readers need to use the tablet's camera, and possibly a WiFi connection too. The camera is fine, but I have the type of tablet that does not take a sim card. I only have a WiFi connection in the house, & hot spots while out & about where ever available.

    I'm interested in D/loading a QR reader/scanner, but wondered if any of them will function with just the camera only?

    QR scanners don't contain a database of the QR codes as the sheer size of such a database would be staggering. Thus, you really need a wireless connection to use them.
