Kno has been a leader in the electronic textbook market for a number of years and currently has 100,000 of them up for grabs. The company struck a deal with Intel to see their service available on the new AppUp Center to debut on Ultrabooks.
The new Intel app platform is going to be available on the new breed of razor thin ultrabook computers. This really is Intel’s answer to the Macbook Air, which has dominated the market for three years. New users to the Kno platform of educational textbooks will gain a 15 day free trial to experiment with the platform.
“Kno provides an incredible user experience for reading digital textbooks to students, and we’re pleased to have them available via Intel AppUp center for people using an Ultrabook,” said George Thangadurai, general manager of PC Client Services, Intel. “Kno’s availability in terms of quantity and quality of digital textbook content is second to none and is a great showcase of educational digital content and the power of the Ultrabooks.”
Kno’s digital textbook app provides students using an Ultrabook access to the largest digital textbook selection with over 100,000 titles from more than 45 publishers including Pearson, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, and Wiley. Kno’s complete education user experience takes full advantage of the Ultrabook’s performance for animation, simulation, video, and interactive content. The Kno Store provides digital textbooks 30-50% cheaper than physical books.
