itwbennett writes “The Microsoft Courier may be a dead project, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a dual-touchscreen e-reader. And a super-sized one at that, says blogger Peter Smith. The Kno, which debuted at All Things Digital’s D8 conference yesterday has ‘two 14.1 inch (1440 x 900) capacitive touch screens. Each screen has its own battery, giving the Kno 8-hours of battery life, but a hefty weight of 5.5 lbs. … If Kno (the company) has its way, students will be carrying around a Kno (the device) rather than a stack of textbooks. That’s the reason for the huge screens; most textbook pages can be shown ‘full size’ on a 14″ screen.’ Engadget, who got some hands-on time with the device, says ‘the entire experience is essentially a WebKit instance.’ Price is still up in the air but Ina Fried at CNET says the company is aiming for a price well under $1000.”
