Apple has a consumer oriented tablet. HP, Dell, Asus, and other major PC makers are expected to launch tablet style devices soon. So how exactly is a small company you’ve never heard of supposed to make a splash in the tablet space? Maybe by going after a different market — and that’s exactly what All Things D is reporting California-based startup Kakai is trying to do.

Kakai isn’t ready to talk about its new product yet. But according to All Things D, the company is working on a dual-screen tablet with a Linux-based operating system. But it’s not really designed to go head to head with the iPad or tablets running Windows or Google Android. Because it’s designed for students and will come with software that lets you read textbooks and other course materials and take notes.

It actually sounds a bit more like the Entourage eDGe than the iPad. But instead of slapping Google Android on the tablet, it sounds like the Kakai machine will use custom software designed specifically for the education market. Still, I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on a dual screen tablet that can surf the web, play audio and video, read eBooks, and let me take notes.

  1. I too would not mind getting one of their devices. To me, it sounds more appealling than the iPAD. I think a dual screen would be cool.

  2. Are they aware that the name of the company essentially means “Go, take a poop” in Russian?
