The new Kindle Wireless Reading Device (U.S. & International Wireless) is available from today for $279, $20 more expensive than the Kindle US-only version, in more than 100 countries worldwide, in the shape of a GSM version with international data roaming. Amazon have also confirmed that they plan an international Kindle DX, too. The DX –launched in the US back in June– has a larger, 9.7″ display than the Kindle 2, a built-in PDF reader using Adobe Reader Mobile technology and is better suited to textbooks, magazines and other periodicals.

According to Amazon spokesman Drew Herdener, the international Kindle DX will come “sometime next year”; however he refused to be drawn on exact release schedules and what sort of price the ebook reader might carry.

Meanwhile Kindle DX is available new for $489 or refurbished for $399 with a $90 saving and full warranty.
