Dual-Screened Kno Tablet Aimed at Students Will Cost $899

I guess as it's got two 14.1-inch touchscreens Kno feels it can get away with charging $899 for its tablet, but $599 for the 14-inch tablet with just one screen? Why, that's more expensive than the iPad!

Considering it's aimed at college students, that's a huge ask on their bank account. But Kno's CEO is reckoning on students seeing the Kno not just as a tablet (something to browse and watch movies on), but as a textbook replacement.

It runs on a Tegra 2 chip, and has 16GB of storage—with the OS said to be Linux. Students, would you live off baked beans for a year, just to be able to afford a Kno? Anyone?

Looks awesome, but that's a crap load of money especially if it's aimed towards college kids.

Mark said...

I don't think many students are going to be able to afford that kinda pricetag.

This is expensive as hell! I'm a bum :D they should lower down the price!

Nokel said...

I'd most likely wait until its able to be hacked before buying this... tablets, unless they're pretty much laptops don't really impress me

they're basically bigger palm pilots :/

Matte said...

Too high price for me :s

Bubbles said...

very nice but which student with a laptop will need something like this

Yeah, good luck with that. Then again, it could be the new iPad.

SleepySpaceCadet said...

Yeah, money I don't have. I'll probably stick with this beautiful laptop and horribly shitty flip phone for awhile.

KillerKun said...

I would pay that amount of moneys for a car, not a damned tablet
