The Inquirer: A FIRM called Kno has just debuted its dual screen tablet at the All Things Digital D8 conference.
The tablet has two 14.1-inch touchscreens and with each screen having its own battery its heavy. We understand that inside it has a Tegra2 chip and 16GB of storage. Did we mention that it has two screens and can be used like a book? This we think makes it almost as good as a book when it comes to reading devices.
Engadget: Did you happen to pre-order a single- or dual-screen 14.1-inch Kno tablet textbook? Alright, we're assuming that schools and wealthy students were the only ones that actually did, but regardless, the monster-sized tablets are starting to ship out this week. According to the press release after the break, both the single- and dual-display versions are being boxed up and will be sent out to those early pre-orderers over the next couple of weeks.
Engadget: Wouldn't you Kno it -- sorry, we couldn't resist -- the Kno has found its way into the confines of FCC's labyrinthine headquarters. But not just one version, no sir / ma'am, the FCC tested both the single screen and dual screen versions together, it seems. External photos of the pair (or is it triplet?) can be found within the same entry, and while the user manual is also included, there's nothing to glean from it. Feel free to enjoy the iconic photography all the same.
Kno is the dual screen educational tablet we ever dreamed off, at least on paper. The bad part (it always is one) consists of the 5.5 lbs weight ‘provided’ by the two massive 14.1 inch touchscreens.
