  • 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."

      I know iPhone OS is not ideal, but think about it. If they come out with a more advance OS in 4.0, that means better os on the iPhones too! I wanted snow leopard though......

      I think the iphone OS is good for this thing, and practical. Giving it OSX would make it competition for their own line of macbooks, especially the 13" models. I think they released this tablet so they could really dig into the iphone OS's true potential, which is limited by its screen size. I knew they'd tap into this to combat the rising e-book (c'mon, who wants to read ebooks on an iPhone?) market, only now it's gonna be able to do infinitely more, making this a very popular (and dare i say dangerously "necessary") piece of hardware.

      Imagine the possibilities when the devs (and perhaps geohot) get their hands on this thing.

      Welp, I can finally go forward with purchasing my netbook. I'd been hoping that this would be competition for a netbook.

      I'm still thinking that the Archos 9" tablet might be fun to play with and fulfill my need for a nice portable internet device.

      Its going to be awesome but i agree the OS they chose is well crap for something like this they need snow leopard as the OS.

      Or a completley new OS all together, maybe that is possible no?

      So it's going to be a 10" iPhone with data access through Verizon for $800.

      If I'm wrong I'm going to gladly eat a ham sandwich which I will prepare while watching/reading about the event.

      Either way, I win.

      I just had the most hysterical visual image of trying mount the tablet in my car and while using the navigon gps software LOL GIANT GPS FTW!!

      ( I know it most likely won't have gps built-in, but we all know it'll be hacked eventually for use with Bluetooth gps devices)
