Amazon will unveil new Kindle next week, CEO says

Some surprise news today – Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos confirmed the company will unveil its 8th-generation Kindle sometime next week. Bezos didn’t offer much on the new eReader, only noting that it will be an “all-new, top of the line Kindle” and that it’s “almost ready.”

That explains why the company currently has a big sale on many of its eReaders, including the current high-end $199 Kindle Voyage, now priced $50 below its standard amount. It seems plausible Amazon will also announce a new Paperwhite, since it’s also on sale, though Bezos hasn’t commented on that matter.

Amazon hasn’t announced a press event next week, so the refresh may come quietly. We’ll let you know when it does.
