I just read about the decision to allow passenger to use electronic devices during all phases of flight. Does anyone know if this applies to international flights as well?

Yes, it does, at least as long as it is a US carrier. If you are in another country flying on a foreign carrier, you would need to check to make sure you are in compliance with their regulations though. Keep in mind that the new regulation still requires that you keep mobile devices in the appropriately named “airplane mode”. http://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/ped/faq/
