Amazon boss Jeff Bezos said the new Kindle would be a high-end product.

Amazon.com chief executive Jeff Bezos said that his company is about to debut a new version of the Kindle e-book reader.

In a message on his Twitter account on Tuesday, Bezos said details of an "all-new, top of the line Kindle" would be unveiled next week.

It would be the eighth generation of a product that helped launch a massive market for electronic books in the past decade. Bezos said the new Kindle would be a high-end product.

The move comes as e-book sales have stagnated for major publishers, a phenomenon experts blame on both the maturation of the market and higher prices charged for digital books.
