A new Kindle from Amazon will use the GSM cellular standard to access AT&T's U.S. network as well as 100 networks with which AT&T roams in the rest of the world. It will cost $279, $20 higher than the new price of the one that uses Sprint's network and the more geographically limited CDMA network protocol. Each item downloaded outside the United States will add about $2. The Kindle will now be sold in other countries, too.
