In this paper we propose a new form of generalized uncertainty principle which involves both a linear and a quadratic term in the momentum. From this we have obtained the corresponding modified dispersion relation which is compared with the corresponding relation in rainbow gravity. The new form of the generalized uncertainty principle reduces to the known forms in appropriate limits. We then calculate the modified velocity of photons and we find that it is energy-dependent, allowing therefore for a superluminal propagation. We then derive the ()-dimensional Klein-Gordon equation taking into account the effects of the modified dispersion relation. The positive frequency mode solution of this equation is then used to calculate the power spectrum arising due to the Unruh effect. The result shows that the power spectrum depends on the energy of the particle owing its origin to the presence of the generalized uncertainty principle. Our results capture the effects of both the simplest form as well as the linear form of the generalized uncertainty principle and also points out an error in the result of the power spectrum up to first order in the generalized uncertainty principle parameter existing in the literature.
