I was about to pre order a kindle hd fire 7" thingy and I see that traders are already selling them on Trade me  Then I see that in the us they are available?? 

So anyone know what the difference is between the US model and the international model
also they say that the US model can be bought without ads can the same be said for the international model?

The difference is that the US model didn't ship overseas directly - those on Trade Me were probably parallel imported (either in someone's luggage or via shipping services). Other than this, they're the same.

Also the International version in pre-order now is not sponsored.
