Kno’s (formerly Kakai’s) e-reader/notebook for education
A few weeks ago we talked about a new startup called Kakai that was co-founded by Osman Rashid, the co-founder of Chegg. According to a new article on The All Things Digital website, Kakai has been renamed Kno and the company is preparing to show off their foldable dual-screen e-reader/notebook for education this week at the D: All Things Digital conference. The device is said to 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. More details to come later this week.
