Kno Tablet Sheds a Screen for Cheaper Prices

The Kno tablet, which debuted at D8 with much fanfare thanks to the company’s innovative dual-screen concept that targets the education market with a hopefully easier way to get textbooks into the digital age, will be shedding one of the tablet’s screens for a cheaper, lower cost single-screen solution that will resemble the iPad and existing Android tablets on the market today. The two-screen model and single-screen model will be available for pre-order at the end of the year, and the dual-screen model is expected to cost less than $1,000 though the company hasn’t announced official pricing nor availability. According to CEO Osman Rashid, who recognizes the price-sensitive educational market, “Even though the Kno pays for itself in 13 months, the smaller up-front investment of the single screen version will allow more students to use our learning platform.” In pioneering the two-screen model, the company is hoping that digital textbooks will allow for better utilization by allowing users to read on one screen and jot notes on the secondary display–that, and the familiar book format may ease users into going digital.
