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.@iosalliance

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!

iPhone OS .... Well I guess it will be the macbook pro for me then!!!

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.

It's much easier to adapt iPhone OS...
...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!

*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*
