Kindle for International! And new lower price!

Two great developments were announced today for Amazon's ebook reader, Kindle.

The first bit of great news for US customers is the 2nd price drop in as many months - now at a much more affordable $259! Just in time for Christmas shopping, I might even get one for my daughter now!

And secondly, I am sure to the delight of many, Amazon have also launched an International Kindle at a very reasonable $279.
