Is This What the Next Amazon Kindle Looks Like?

Amazon is widely expected to introduce new Kindles at its event next week and it looks like we might be getting a sneak peek at the goods early. Here's an image that supposedly shows a new Kindle Touch with Paperwhite. Yep, it looks like the Kindle is finally getting a front-lit display a la the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight.

The Verge says the Kindle's screen says, "higher contrast, high resolution, integrated lighting, and eight weeks of battery life," even when using the light. It looks like a better looking Kindle—the home button is gone and the grey exterior looks much, much darker now—and if Paperwhite matches up to its name, it'll have an ever better e-ink screen. We'll find out more soon. [The Verge]
