Kno To Ship Single And Dual-Screen Tablets By Year-End
The company has been trickling information on these out for some time now, but the most vital point has yet to be disclosed. Until today. Kno will be producing a single screen tablet and a dual-screen tablet, and they will each hit the market by the end of the year for $599 and $899, respectively. The company has stated that they will be aiming their products at 10 colleges in America at first, with co-founder and CEO Osman Rashid stating the following: "We are going to do online and offline marketing, in a very focused approach."
The Kindle DX hasn't done too well in college environments, but it was limited by the non-color, slowly refreshing E Ink display. We definitely think that paper textbooks are on their way out in the education world, but it's a world that moves slowly. How long will it take for tablets to finally saturate that market? Only time will tell, but Kno has a pretty compelling offering to make the takeover official.
