Kno Dual-screen Tablet Appears At D8

You might have heard of Kno (previously known as Kakai) before this, the company who was planning to offer a dual-screen Linux-based eBook reader designed for students. Now at D8, the company has unveiled the fruit of its labor, and we have to say that it’s huge, sporting dual 14.1–inch capacitive IPS displays that pack 1440 x 900 pixel resolutions each. Specifications aren’t that bad as it boasts six hours of battery life, weighs 5.5 pounds, NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chip and 16GB of storage. The device is still in the development stage, so the user experience was laggy and buggy, but Kno is currently in the midst of smoothing things out. When it’s released, it should be priced below $1,000, though we’re looking forward to seeing how they plan to pitch the device as a replacement to buying regular text books. Imagine bringing this device to school every day instead of those thick reference books.
