The e-reader trend is about to get larger. Amazon.com has announced that it will begin selling an international version of the Kindle that will work in more than 100 countries beginning October 19, the Financial Times reports. The company will also slash the e-reader's price in the U.S. by $40 to $259, which will likely increase sales before the holiday rush. The international version will cost $279 and use AT&T's global network instead of Sprint, which the domestic reader uses. The market for e-readers is becoming increasingly competitive now that Sony has a competing line and Apple is rumored to be launching a tablet computer.
