From my experience, yes. I should add, however, that regardless of the number of available, unsecured networks, the user must tap on "connect" before actually establishing a connection. But if one returns to a previously-connected network the Kindle will indeed connect automatically unless that particular network has been removed ("forgotten") from the list of networks.
