  • 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."

      Yes, it will run the iPhone OS. Who's to say the iPhone OS will remain as limited as it is now. With the Tablet as part of the family, they'll be able to expand the OS to incorporate more "desktop" related applications and functions. It was rumored that the people in Cupertino are more excited the iPhone 4G than the Tablet. Maybe the next iPhone and iPhone OS will truly give us that "computer in our pocket" feel.

      With an SDK that is already widely distributed, used, and has proven to be immensely successful via the AppStore; this is a smart move on the part of Apple.

      I just watched the video I have to say that its interesting that a news person can mention something something apple tablet to this guy and he goes and announces the tablet for apple completely stealing their thunder, for tomorrows event. So close apple so close!

      Wouldnt that mcgraw guy be sworn to secracy in their contract or something? Maybe its apples way of hiring someone to be the bearer of awful unwated big iphone news?

      And what i was thinking was, although IT IS a big iphone it is still a pretty cool concept a touch screen tablet, but what about the pinch and the pull that we know so well on the iphone, my hands are not big enough to pinch and pull over 10 inches, just another thought!

      I'm sure the sensitivity will be set in a way that will let you zoom in with ease. Or maybe this tablet is actually an iPhone for The Worlds Most Giant DR.

      I see what your saying as if they were both using the exact same OS then that would mean that it would no longer be iphone os, it would be apple OS for iphone and tablet, or something.

      What i was thinking was that if they were gonna share the same OS then that means that they are gonna share all updates and all apps and always ALWAYS be the same which is kind of a shame for those really wanting something extra outta this tablet as many of you do.
      So will the tablet use the existing iphone OS for now then go off down its own path with its own version of OS because its supports something the iphone does not? Because if it really was using the exact same OS as the iphone then that would mean it would be nothing more than just that.

      ...for added functionality than to give Snow Leopard the ability to have a touch-screen with multi-touch gestures, virtual keyboard, etc.

      Steve Jobs is no idiot and he knows that people are looking to combine a laptop and a kindle in one stroke. This has been Apple's MO for the past 10 years.

      People are thinking too literally here. A big iPhone? Give me a break!

      don't be so sure. have we seen android on an iphone? more than a year after the linux kernel ran, and still nothing.

      Snow leopard is difficult on the 13" MacBook (due to the size) and even then, you have a little pointer to use. Now imagine the screen 3" smaller and instead of the pointer, your finger. It would be sloppy.

      *crossing fingers for at least Adobe Creative Suite apps and that the tablet comes with a digitizer pen... Oh, and the ability to dual screen mode with my iMac would be sick too but not likely*

      I'm hoping they put a shell of the OS and give it some more functionality and a better design, but still be able to keep it as a mobile device. By the rumors going on, Apple may be switching up the design of the iPhone OS. Hoping that turns out good. lol

      have faith.. apple rarely disappoints.. they leave stuff out that we would like to see, all the time.. but they still impress us none the less. I think it will be amazing, as that CEO only knows so much.. and his words could be conveyed in many different ways
