Seems Kno realized that not every student wanted a hulking $899 dual-screened tablet, but I'm not sure selling textbooks that are readable on Facebook is the right way forward—hasn't Kno thought about the possibility for distraction?
Sony announced their dual-screened S2 tablet today. It's not the only twin-screen tablet, but considering recent ill-conceived efforts from the likes of Acer, Toshiba and Kyocera, we're a little skeptical. With the S2, Sony's basically cut a 10-inch screen in half and stuck a hinge in between. How much of a benefit…
I guess as it's got two 14.1-inch touchscreens Kno feels it can get away with charging $899 for its tablet, but $599 for the 14-inch tablet with just one screen? Why, that's more expensive than the iPad!
Does the lure of playing with "the most powerful tablet anyone has ever made" tempt you? How about those dual 14.1-inch touchscreens? (That's a combined might of 28.2-inches!) Kno has received $46m investment, with an end-of-year launch already penciled-in.
