"The device is built on its own Linux-based operating system and supports a full browser, raising the question of whether students may end up using it to check in with their Facebook friends rather than listen to their lectures. It is powered by a NVidia Tegra processor and supports Flash.

"It is hard to judge the Kno at this point, because it is a work-in-progress. Several of the features do not yet work. And during the demo, the device appeared to be slow. But then again, it is a prototype.

"Kno plans to release a test version in the fall and begin selling it broadly before the end of the year. Mr. Rashid said the Kno would cost less than $1,000, but otherwise did not discuss pricing."
