The Kno – A possible challenger to the iPad for Attorney’s and Students

The Kno is tablet or slate computer that supports both a touch interface and writing with a stylus. I think this gives it real potential to challenge the iPad as I believe the lack of writing support is a major limitation. It is going to be available in two models, one with dual 14″ screens and the other with a single 14″ screen.  Otherwise, the technical specifications are planned to be the same.  The dual screen version will fold flat so that it could be carried and used while standing.

Right now their focus is on the education market and providing a rich experience with interactive textbooks.  It allows highlighting of text and notetaking in the margins, as well as providing a note taking application for more detailed work or drawing.

I could certainly envision it being used by an attorney at trial to track depositions, take notes on exhibits and potentially be able to display those exhibits to the jury.

I will be following the Kno’s progress, at this time it is scheduled to be in production and available before the end of the year.
