If "wireless" is of importance to you, Sony fails.
Personally, I don't care that much about 3G. But I find WiFi quite convenient.
In that instance, nook is kind of benchmark. It does offer both. You even can exchange the US AT&T SIM and replace by your own (needs hacking the OS but is really simple to do). I've done so and easily can download my books via WiFi or 3G over here in Germany. You even can download books from your "calibre" library.
You have to buy books from B&N via VPN. Either on your PC or on hacked nook itself.
Both Kindles are the most "international" ones from your batch. I've got the US versions. I can purchase from Amazon in whatever country I want. Usually, I buy from the US store, a few times I bought from the UK store. Unfortunately, there's not much German content. If you're into "open formats", ePUB is the format of choice - which Kindles can't handle natively.
Personally, I love my Sony 900. I simply find its design and UI perfect.
I love nook for its design as well and it's a rare treat with its WiFi capabilities.
I prefer Amazon's webshop a bit over B&Ns though.
From the Sony units, I'd only recommend 505 (kind of outdated, but still tops) and 900.
900 makes most sense, if you aim for a touchscreen unit.
If you're into wireless, Amazon is the most international one. But you can do similar on nook (with a little bit of effort). Between nook and Kindle, I'd mainly focus on the file formats and the webshops.
