Amazon will introduce a new "top of the line" Kindle next week, says company CEO Jeff Bezos. Bezos announced the news on Twitter this afternoon, saying the new model will kick off another generation of Kindle products. It'll be the 8th generation, following the much-loved Kindle Voyage that sat atop the 7th generation of Amazon's e-readers. Bezos says the new Kindle is "almost ready," so it's not clear if it'll be launching next week or just unveiled in an announcement; but, typically, Amazon tends to announce products when they're ready to go.
