Here’s Amazon’s first response to Barnes & Noble’s Nook. All Kindle 2’s now support international coverage, and all cost $259.
Two weeks ago Amazon unveiled an international Kindle 2 for $279, with wireless support from AT&T (T). It kept a national version for $259 supported by Sprint (S).
This is bad news for Sprint. It will get fewer new subscribers from Amazon. It’s still supporting the Kindle DX, but this considerably cuts the new customers it will have.
AT&T, on the other hand, gets to record all the new Kindle buyers as subscribers providing data revenue.
