Kno Adds Single Screen Model to E-Text Book Lineup
Both models are slated to go on sale later this year, but, according to our friends at Engadget, the company still has its work cut out for it. While the IPS screen is big and beautiful, and the six to eight hours of battery life enough to survive an average school day, the UI is laggy and incomplete. In addition to e-reading and note-taking, the Kno will pack both graphing and scientific calculator apps. The library of possibilities will be expanded with the addition of an SDK in early 2011. Can the Kno succeed where the iPad and the XO, despite having spurred interest and speculation, failed? We doubt it, but we'll be keeping an eye on the intriguing device. Check out the promo video, starring the dual-screened model, after the break.
