The Dual-Screened Kno Tablet Has Arrived

How would you like to own the world’s most powerful tablet, something similar to Microsoft’s canned Courier? How about this 'most powerful tablet' also be a dual screened tablet with a combined screen size of 28.2 inches, which the company is touting as a replacement for school textbooks?

Is it worth $1000??

Got you interested didn’t we? If you are on the lookout for something we just described, then ‘Kno’ has just the thing to satisfy your needs.

Running on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chip with 16GB of inbuilt memory Memory, the Kno tablet uses two capacitive IPS screens, measuring 14.1-inches each. With Linux as its OS, Kno wants to launch its own app store with e-versions of textbooks which can be transferable between the tablet and other devices.

While all this sounds fine and dandy, the worrying thing is the price. The dual-screened version costs $899 while the single screen version is $599, which is quite a lot considering the Apple iPad costs around $875 for a 32GB 3G with Wi-Fi. Can a glorified textbook replace the iPad?
