D8: Kno reveal their dual 14″ screen e-reader

All Things Digital is throwing their 8th annual tech conference this week, and the high point of the con was today's keynote presentation by Kno.

Kno was there to show off their digital textbook platform. It's a dual screen Linux tablet with 2 14" LCD screens. It weighs in at 5.5 pounds, and has Bluetooth and Wifi. The reported price is "under $1k".

Battery life is 6 to 8 hours, and the CPU is Nvidia Tegra T20.

I'm going to pass on making the obvious comments about weight cost, size, and battery life. Instead I'm going to hold on forming an opinion until I know the specifics of the screen tech. I really hope that they're not using an old style LCD. That would be a killer, IMO.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
