Amazon announced today a new version of the Kindle eBook reader. The new Amazon Kindle U.S. & International Wireless is selling for only $279 on Amazon.com and can be used in over 100 countries and territories.

The Kindle with U.S. & International Wireless will be available for shipment to customers in over 100 countries around the world on October 19th. That is right the Kindle eBook reader is going to be available outside the U.S. for the first time.
The Kindle with U.S. & International Wireless offers customers the same features as the now lower priced Kindle U.S. Wireless that sells now for only $259 (was $299) on Amazon.com.

The Amazon Kindle eBook reader wirelessly downloads books, magazines, newspapers and personal documents to a crisp, high-resolution 6-inch electronic ink display that looks and reads like real paper. Kindle utilizes the same 3G wireless technology as advanced cell phones, so you never need to hunt for a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The Kindle Store offers international customers over 200,000 English-language books, including New Releases and New York Times Bestsellers, which are typically priced less than physical editions. Over 1,000 different rights-holders now have books available in the Kindle Store, including leading publishers Atlantic Books, Bloomsbury, Canongate, Faber and Faber, Hachette, Harlequin, HarperCollins, Lonely Planet, Penguin, Profile Books, Quercus, Simon & Schuster and Wiley.

Over 85 top U.S. and international newspapers and magazines are also available in the Kindle Store for single purchase or subscription. Many international newspapers are available in the Kindle Store for the first time, including La Stampa (Italy), El País (Spain), El Universal (Mexico), O Globo (Brazil), The Daily Telegraph (UK), joining top papers such as The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, Le Monde (France), Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany) and The Washington Post. Newspaper and magazine subscriptions are auto-delivered wirelessly to Kindle.
