McGraw-Hill CEO: Apple Tablet is Based on iPhone OS; Going to be “Really Terrific”

Mockup Images Of Apple Tablet

After months of rumors and speculations, we finally have a confirmation from a trusted source that Apple will launch the Tablet at tomorrow’s media event.

McGraw-Hill's CEO Terry MrGraw in an interview with CNBC has confirmed that their textbooks will be available on the Apple Tablet and it will be based on iPhone OS.

When McGraw-Hill's CEO Terry McGraw was asked if their textbooks will be available on soon-to-be-announced Apple Tablet, he responded:

"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."

You can checkout the video below of that interview below (the discussion about the Tablet starts at 2m 50s):

McGraw's CEO spilling details of the Tablet just before the official announcement is not going to make Steve Jobs very happy, who thinks that the Apple Tablet is the most important thing he has ever done.

We can’t wait to see what all the Apple Tablet can do. What is on your wishlist? Let us know in the comments.

    Wow, Steve either will be mad or he is in on it. My guess is he is in on it.

  • Bill

    Hope they have a flash solution if based on iPhone software.

    k the apple tablet is cool and everything but i believe this web site is call ed iphone hacks (IPHONE!!!!) who cares about the tablet, give more info on iphone OS 4.0!!!!!
    thats what people with IPHONES care about !!!!!!!!

  • MrPink077

    It directly will affect the iPhone's OS 4.0, so this is defintely RELEVANT. If you don't like it, don't read it. Otherwise, just stop complaining, nothing is NEW on the iPhone and won't be until AFTER the iPad/iTablet/iSlate!

  • ssdd

    so a tablet based on the iphone os does not belong on a iphone web based sight. All u need to do is skip over the tablet post and go for the iphone ones why wast your own and all or the people who want to read about the tablet time with this bullshit. GO AWAY U ARE NOT WELCOME HERE

  • Newbie

    Oops spilled the beans thanks guy.Hmm do I want to pull out a massive iphone out of my pocket? Probably NOT.

    Some of you that post on comments act like little girls. Going back and fourth over nonsense. Just because the guy said it's not relevant and he wants info on 4.0 don't mean u gotta flame him. Shit, I still don't even understand the point of making another tablet. Especially pricing it at $600; they might as well reduce the prices of MacBooks in that case. However, THATS JUST MY OPINION. The idea of eventually seeing a guide on how to jailbreak something using the apple tablet does sound a somewhat humorous. I agree with the guy above that doesn't really care about this but, I'll read about it. Apple sure knows how to bring out the rudeness in people on the internet and rape their pockets at the same time. Apple tablet in march, iPhone 4G likely in June, and a rumored MacBook with a bigger screen than the largest it already comes.

    Though, if it's enough to get people on the Internet going crazy then they will definitely gross more than expected
