The Kno Tablet, a dual screen device that hopes to tackle the digital textbook market, recently raised some significant capital and this should provide them the opportunity to bring the Kno to market by the end of 2010. The article in gigaom offers more information, as does this one in VentureBeat.
Just saw an article about Kno, a new company launching a digital textbook platform and reader. The device offers a two panel tablet for viewing textbook material in true form by maintaining page structure, charts, graphs, and other non-text elements. The device allows note taking and highlighting and offers Wi-Fi and 3-G access. Kno has already contracted with 4 academic textbook publishers including Wiley, McGraw Hill, Pearson, and Cengage Learning. For more info, see this article from gigaom or the press release on business wire. Twitter @GoodtoKNO
