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."
