  • Apple Tablet Confirmed! iPhone OS Based! Will Be Announced Tomorrow!
    McGraw-Hill CEO, has confirmed that Apple will be announcing a Tablet tomorrow, which will be iPhone OS Based. There is no denying this one. Straight from the man himself. Here's video to prove it.

    "Yeah, Very exciting. Yes, they'll make their announcement tomorrow on this one. We have worked with Apple for quite a while. And the Tablet is going to be based on the iPhone operating system and so it will be transferable. So what you are going to be able to do now is we have a consortium of e-books. And we have 95% of all our materials that are in e-book format on that one. So now with the tablet you're going to open up the higher education market, the professional market. The tablet is going to be just really terrific."

      Has anyone thought that maybe the new iPhone OS 4.0 is someting totally redesigned and maybe it's redone to be a short step down from snow leopard????

      So maybe the tablet running the new OS won't be as bad as it sounds

      Indeed, this pretty much guarantees I will not buy this. I will not deal again with these silly apple games of what I can or cannot do with MY DEVICE. I am saddened, I would have really liked to buy a quality itablet, if it was OSX (real OSX) based.

      It's going to be a new iPhone, or new MacBooks. A tablet is worthless to me, but for a whole hell of alot of people it would be very useful. I'm betting new iPhone, new MacBook and a new iPhoneOS update. Course, I am probably wrong!

      oversized iphone. retarded. glad i never got my hopes up for this stupid thing. don't get me wrong - i'm sure it'll look 'cool' but as far as practicality goes - waste of money. (for middle class america anyway. if you're rich, i'm sure you'll buy one just cause you have the money to, not because you actually need it.)

      Am I the only one who actually prefers the iPhone OS? I don't think I'll buy it if it is not based on the iPhone OS. I'm completely not attracted to OSX. I think it is too clunky for a tablet. I love my iPhone but not the small screen, so the tablet is 100% of what I'm looking for. Only thing is it must do multitasking.

      lol @ this thread

      Just wait to be pissy after the conference tomorrow. OS 4 probably wont be anything like the current OS.

      I think an OS 4.0 will have a lot of features we have wanted and that will make the tablet "close" to Mac OS such as multitasking. Can't wait for the demo tomorrow to see what's up!

      I don't see the point of getting a tablet, what can it do that an iphone or macbook cannot do? Honestly seems like a waste of a $1000 ( or $600 depends on what Apple says)

      Some of you people need to chill out. No one here has seen the damn thing yet. No one here knows how it will look or function or perform.

      Idea! Take a wait and see approach.

      I think when we actually find out what the tablet is all about I will make an "i told you so" thread. So everyone who thinks os 4.0 or tablet os will be a lot better than current iphone os, can just jump in and say "hey guys who said this would suck or its a let down, well its not "
