Kakai making Kindle rival for schools

Secretive tech startup Kakai is developing a rival to the Kindle for the classroom, according to a scoop. The as yet unnamed and unseen device would be a dual-screen Linux tablet with support for gesture-based touch. It would be pitched as a hybrid e-reader and notepad, and would have both software and web access that makes it simpler to load textbooks.

Audio and video features have also been mentioned by the AllThingsD sources and suggest Kakai's project will use LCDs rather than e-paper, although this doesn't rule out a mixed-display device like the Entourage eDGe (pictured).

The tablet is still in early development and won't be ready for demonstration for the next several months. Its completion may depend heavily on investment from venture capital firms like Andreessen Horowitz.
