Kno delays shipment of its single and dual-screen tablets
The California-based company Kno, Inc. demonstrated a unique tablet this year at CES designed for students. According to Laptopshop, the tablets were supposed to ship last December, but the company missed the mark. Two months later, Kno is apparently still having trouble meeting their shipment dates. More mysteriously, the company did not provide any reasons for the latest delay, nor how long it will last, as reported by Engadget. A shroud of uncertainty definitely obscures its official launch date and availability numbers.
Kno is responsible for developing its dual-screen Linux tablet aimed at replacing traditional paper notebooks and textbooks in classrooms. Although mostly aimed at college students, the tablet is quite powerful and full of features, including an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 512MB of RAM, 14.1-inch screens at 1440 x 900 resolution each, web browsing and the ability to run apps and Adobe Flash 10.1 content. The dual-screen model also comes in a single-screen variant for a more portable option. Unfortunately, students will have to wait a little bit longer before they can bring these new toys to classes and lectures.
