Kno E-Reader Tablets to Start at $599

To their credit, the $599 model has a larger display than the iPad. But rollout sounds problematic:

Kno would not say exactly how many it has ordered for its first tablet production run–the device is being built by China’s Foxconn–but co-founder and CEO Osman Rashid said in an interview earlier today with BoomTown that units would number “in the thousands.”

Rashid said the Kno tablet will initially be aimed at 10 college campuses across the U.S., although he also declined to name them.

“Thousands”? In the meantime, Apple will be selling over a million iPads a month.
