Get In The Kno...Before Xmas

The oversized reader/tablet targeted at students and teachers called the Kno is taking preorders for arrivals before Christmas. Prices run between $599 for a 16 GB single-screen tablet and $999 for a 32 GB dual-screen folio.

Those prices include an educational discount.

Kno doesn’t compare itself to other e-readers or tablets. They compare the Know to new textbooks, the tens of thousands they and their parents spend on college, the $600 entry-level unit is a bargain.

“Kno’s extraordinary benefits represent only a tiny fraction of the overall cost of college, but its impact on the student’s career – and the energy it adds to the experience, the thrill of learning, and the ultimate grade – is dramatic,” said Osman Rashid, Co-Founder and CEO of Kno, Inc. “Even better, when you do the math, it actually pays for itself and still saves $1,300 in digital textbook costs.”

At $599, the Kno is $100 more than the WiFi-only iPad, but it’s a lot bigger at 14.1 inches. It’s basically got twice the screen size of an iPad. And if you go for the dual-screen, you’ve quadrupled your usable screen size.

It’s got an NVidia Tegra 2 graphics chip with an A9 dual-core 1GHz processor and 512 MB RAM. Despite this giant display of video power, it still claims up to 6 hours of battery life on “normal campus use?”
