While many expect tomorrow's Apple event to result in CEO Steve Jobs unveiling an Apple table, we now have confirmation. Considering how much Apple values secrecy, you have to expect they are not pleased about this.
While being interviewed on CNBC today, addressing his company's latest earnings, which showed its first boost in earnings in two years, Terry McGraw, chairman and CEO of McGraw-Hill said:
"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 -- 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."
So there. We have confirmation on some of the details. iPhone OS on the tablet, which makes it transferable to the iPhone, as he said. Nice. Tomorrow can't come fast enough.
