Kakai’s e-reader/notebook for education

According to an article on the All Things Digital website, Osman Rashid, the co-founder of Chegg, the popular online service for renting and selling textbooks, is also the co-founder of another tech startup company called Kakai that is secretly working on a foldable dual-screen e-reader/notebook device for the education market. The device will be powered by a Linux operating system, support gesture-based touch, include software and web access to deliver course materials, and include note taking, audio, and video capabilities. Additional details have not been revealed but we can expect to hear more about this device in the coming months.
