They use different hardware. The original version used EVDO and Sprint. The new versions uses GSM and AT&T.

And to clarify, the physical look and feel are no different between the two. And, the user interface and experience is the same between the two.
They simply use different radios inside.

Like everybody said, There is no physical difference. and I think in the future there will be no Kindle U.S. edition only global wireless. I mean people in the U.S. will use the same model as worldwide. So, to fit with the previous design of Kindle cover, protection or anything they have to keep their design as same as U.S. edition.

Thanks for all your answers.
I got a kindle from a freind ( from the USA) and could not get the connection working here in the Netherlands. Now I know why! The only option left is to first download books to my pc and then to the Kindle, that works but is less fun than online
