McGraw-Hill CEO confirms Apple Tablet, based on iPhone OS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
In an interview with CNBC on Tuesday, the CEO of McGraw-Hill confirmed that Apple will introduce a tablet Wednesday that is based on the iPhone operating system.

The CEO of publisher McGraw-Hill says in an interview with CNBC that 95 percent of all its materials will be available for Apple's upcoming tablet in a e-book format. Terry McGraw confirmed that Apple would be announcing the tablet at its event Wednesday:

"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."
This confirms many of the rumors that have been circulating regarding Apple's talks with publishers regarding possible content for its tablet.

It was reported earlier this month that publisher HarperCollins was also working with Apple over e-book content. HarperCollins may offer "enhanced" e-books including video, author interviews, and social networking applications.

Earlier this week it was alleged that a consortium of key book publishers had been in "secret" negotiations with Apple to bring content to Apple's forthcoming device.

And with that we confirm it will at least be an e-reader based off some incarnation of the iPhone OS. Lets just hope it's a lot more then just a fancy e-reader.

I believe we can also look forward to Mr. McGraw's mutilated corpse showing up in a river in the near future...
They spoke of the sayings and doings of their commander, the grand duke, and told stories of his kindness and irascibility.

No, there will just be some reason or another it is difficult to find MGH content in whatever the store is, and not much chance of them being in any of the Top Pics. The content version of being ATi'ed.
