Thanks for the update. I know you were anticipating using it for school. Disappointed would be an understatement I'm sure.

They had offered to reimburse us for any book rentals or purchased books. I'm wondering if they're waiting for the end of the semester so they can renege on that offer. For some students it would have been half or close to the full cost of the Kno.

Ugh! Looks like I won't be getting a "Kno" after all. I wonder who they're in bed with.

From chatting with other pre-orders, it seems that those of us that ordered a single tablet got the phone call that it will be delayed an additional 60 days. Those that ordered the dual tablet got no such call.

I suppose the single tablet will still be made and delivered, just not via Kno. The the dual is, most likely, no longer in the running.

That's really too bad. This looked like it had great potential. I'm sure a real disappointment especially to those that pre-ordered.

I'm sure. The dual seemed like it would be too heavy and cumbersome to carry around. Sitting at a desk would be great, but I seldom do that when I'm studying.
