Kno tablet shipments delayed until further notice

Summary:Anyone remember the Kno tablet that debuted last fall? Anyone? Okay, well even if you don't remember or know about the Kno, it's delayed.

Anyone remember the Kno tablet that debuted last fall? Anyone? Okay, well even if you don't remember or know about the Kno, it's delayed.

The 14-inch tablet emerged as ideal for e-textbooks and other educational tools. The Kno recently made headlines for being tested by a Lego robot. Seriously.

Apparently, the Kno was supposed to have shipped by now, but according to Engadget and the following statement, it's going to be awhile:

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.

There is likely some technical glitch or error that is slowing the Kno team down, which is fairly common with first-run tablets and e-book readers. Remember Spring Design's Alex? Or Pandigital's Novel? Or even the JooJoo tablet PC? The list could go on and on.

Have any of you ordered the Kno tablet?
