Kno dual touch tablet to debut at media event

Startup tablet designer Kakai today rebranded itself as Kno and set out a date for the formal debut of its dual-screen tablet. The Linux-based device should get a formal appearance at the D8 conference starting June 2nd. No more information has slipped out, but the tablet is already known to be a hybrid e-reader and note taking device aimed at students, with support for both audio and video.

Kno has been in existence for roughly a year, but it's already reported as having a "panoply of high-profile players" involved in deals. Its development has been kept secret and is rumored to be more significant than would normally be the case for a newcomer to a field already being controlled by heavyweight rivals such as Amazon and Apple.
