The international version will work in "over 100 countries and territories", but Amazon doesn't specify if there are any additional charges for using it in a place other than the one where you bought it. It also looks like AT&T is the one that will be providing overseas roaming coverage for the GSM version. [Amazon]

I'm starting to become more and more interested in this device. I'm tired of dropping hundreds and hundreds of dollars on college books.

Unfortunately, I need color for my design classes, which the Kindle cannot display with the current E-Ink technology...

booooooo. :(
