Amazon after announcing the launch of its Amazon Payments Global Partner Program, has also hints at the release date for its 8th-generation Kindle reader. Set to go live next week, as an “all-new, top of the link e-reader” – Amazon Kindle. So, if you’re thinking about purchasing a Kindle Voyage, then you probably should hold off. As Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has tweeted that the company is ready to launch a brand new high-end Kindle next week.
Details for the all-new 8th-generation Kindle will be revealed next week, which is almost ready to debut and when compared to the Voyage, which is still slightly smaller and lighter than the Paperwhite, it also features a screen with adaptive lighting technology and has a pressure sensitive page turn buttons. For most readers, the cheaper Paperwhite is the better buying option. And that’s what Amazon has to differentiate its new e-reader from the Voyage next week, and currently Bezos isn’t dropping any specifications or features about the new Amazon Kindle.
A product that helped grab a massive market for electronic books in the past decade, and this new comer would be a higher-end Kindle product. The move comes as e-book sales have stagnated for major publishers and higher prices charged for digital books, which originally result of a new wave of contracts between the big New York publishers and Amazon. The contrcats let the publishers set the prices at which their books will be sold and limit Amazon’s ability to discount.
The number of titles and revenues generated by indipendent publishers keeps grwoing, thanks in large part to the Kindle Store, and Amazon’s e-reader occupy an interesting place among the company’s hardware line-up. Made a new way people can access the Kindle Syore: lots of readers use the Kindle app on their tablets and smartphones to read digital books. While the mechine especially dedicated to reading. Abilities typically offered in other portable electronic devices are either absent or subordinated.
Heads up readers – all-new, top of the line Kindle almost ready. 8th generation. Details next week.

Nevertheless, it appears that the Kindle remains close to the heart of Amazon’s founder, given the top billing it received on Bezos’ own Twitter account.
