The new device is a less expensive alternative to the previously announced dual-screen tablet focused on providing textbooks, course materials and other content for the classroom. Kno, a tablet maker focused on the education market, plans to release a single-screen device that will provide students with a less expensive option than the company's previously announced dual-screen tablet. Like its larger cousin, the single-screen model, which has a 14.1-inch display, is built to store digital textbooks, course materials and other educational content. Because e-textbooks are less expensive, students can reap a return on investment from the dual-screen model, which is expected to sell for less than $1,000, within 13 months, according to Kno. The single-screen tablet will be less expensive, meaning a faster ROI. Kno has not released pricing.
