Do the demo units at Target and BestBuy also have the browser disabled?
No idea but my guess would be yes.

My guess would be that on BestBuy has WiFi enabled. They do for most connected devices, and this may vary by location. I believe that BB have more local discretion when it comes to these type of things. Staples and Target probably have instructions from Corporate office to not enable WiFi. It is a comfort thing and Target and Staples would be terrified of a hacker getting into their network that handle CC transactions. Also Staples and Target WiFi services is probably handled through a contracted third party (red tape) whereas BB is probably setup by the Geek Squad.
