  • 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."

      Wow, this sucks. Why didn't they just put Windows 98 on it for an OS instead of an iPhone one.

      i'm very upset about this but at the same time i'm very excited. i am upset that it's iphone os based but at the saem time i feel apple isn't that dumb to expect to sell a crap load of just giant iphone/ipod touches. There has to be more features we dont have a clue about.

      this sucks, I'll never buy a tablet with a cutaway operating system... I mean c'mon, I have a tablet that runs Windows XP just fine, and the tablet is ------> 9 years old <-------

      I wish the periodical industry would just die already, it's a complete waste of money and time with Google, Yahoo, and CNBC onine 24/7

      I am concerned of having to wear a man-purse to carry this tablet around. I hope it will not be like carrying around a Commodore Vic 20 lol

      I think when they say iphone OS based they mean the touch aspect. I mean snow leopard itself isn't touch based, so it would make sense for them to say it's iphone OS based. I would expect that tomorrow everyone will be woed by what Steve Jobs unleashes and everyone will want this dang tablet....

      i bet you this will run os snow leopard or ceiling cat.... a year from now when they release it! its just there way to gain more money... thats how the iphones started.... they gradually added the features we wanted to gain more money. i feel that its gonna do the same with the tablet. i dont blame them! everyone loves apple products. so im suckered to buy one
