Kno announced a single screen version of its tablet textbook. Kno combines a touchscreen tablet with digital textbooks, course materials, web access, digital media, and note taking capabilities. With the single screen version, Kno is hoping to reach students that may not be interested in or able to purchase the dual screen model. The company plans to ship both the single and two-screen tablet textbooks by the end of this year.

Kno Breaks New Ground with the World’s First Single Screen Tablet Textbook

Kno Continues the Pace of Innovation in Integrated Learning with a Smaller Version of the Kno

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TechCrunch Disrupt Conference -- Kno, Inc., the groundbreaking tablet textbook and dynamic learning platform, today announced its further commitment to the education market with a single screen version of its tablet textbook. The single screen version extends the breakthroughs and functionality of the dual screen version announced in June.

“Kno fundamentally improves the way students learn,” said Osman Rashid, the CEO and Co-Founder of Kno, Inc. “We are driven to innovate in a category that has been static for too long. 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.”

Kno, short for knowledge, is a transformative learning platform that blends a touch-screen tablet, digital textbooks, course materials, note-taking, web access, educational applications, digital media, sharing and more into a powerful and engaging educational experience that is not available on any other tablet or eReader today.

“From day one, we designed the Kno with flexibility in mind,” said Babur Habib, CTO and Co-Founder of Kno, Inc. “We developed the product to have multiple configurations and meet different student needs. The single screen maintains the elegance of our fluid, intuitive interface while capturing the richness and ‘page fidelity’ of the original textbook.”

The company plans to ship both the single and two-screen tablet textbooks to consumers by the end of 2010. Pricing and pre-order announcements will be made in the coming months.

Where does one get the content for them? Will it load existing e-books?

This is interesting.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
