The Kno tablet currently has two iterations, none of which are are in hands of their student ambassadors or the people who pre-ordered them. Emails sent to the sales department normally go answered and it looks like the company is in trouble of folding before it even got off the ground.
Firstly the trouble woes had begun at CES with Kno with the company attended without a booth and was meeting with press at random locations via text messages and normally failed to meet them. This was normally due to the fact that the the traffic at the convention made it impossible to effectively meet without rooms or a booth.
The delay with shipping out customers pre-orders was not mentioned on the Kno website and most users did not receive emails either telling them it was delayed. The only comment Kno had regarding this matter was when we pressed them. “Things at Kno are going well. However, as you noted below, there has been a shipment delay. As soon as Kno has new information, we will share that with customers and can certainly give you a heads up if that is helpful.”
