Intel Capital, Condé Nast Owner Invest $30 Million in Kno; Intel Licenses Student Tablet Hardware Design.

According to sources close to the situation, Intel Capital and Advance Publications will lead a $30 million investment round in Kno, the high-profile student tablet start-up.

In addition to the funding from its venture capital arm, Intel itself will license the hardware design of Kno, which will now focus on its software to manage the devices that are aimed at the college market.

Intel will not manufacture tablets, but take its hardware blueprints and share it with their OEM partners.

Kno is now officially out of the hardware business.
