Kno unveils iPad-style tablet computer aimed at students

Kno is aiming to rival Apple’s iPad by launching a tablet-style computer aimed a students.
The device – which is available in single and dual-screen models – can be used as an ebook reader and to take and annotate lecture notes, as well as to organise school and university timetables and keep track of projects.
The entry level Kno reader has a 14in screen, and will cost around $599 when it goes on sale in the United States, $100 more than the entry level iPad. The dual-screen version also features 14in displays and will set students back $899. Both support touch input, and are based on a Linux operating system.
