McGraw-Hill CEO lets the tablet out of the bag-on television!

McGraw-Hill CEO lets the tablet out of the bag-on television!
McGraw-Hill CEO Terry McGraw told CNBC viewers tonight that Apple will be releasing a tablet tomorrow. At the same time, he also noted that it would use the iPhone's OS and that the tablet is going to be terrific. Here's the whole picture. CNBC's Erin Burnett asked the publishing exec about the Apple tablet. He replied, "They’ll make their announcement tomorrow on this one… 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…The tablet is going to be just really terrific." We have the video for posterity, thanks to BGR, and the fun stuff starts at about the 2:49 mark.

I hope if VZW gets the iphone we can send all the Apple-lovers to Cupertino for support.

it's a hybrid of cell phone and laptop, and while apple will have a huge smash with this, they're overhyped and under-practical Picture something that does what the I-phone does, The Kindle does and 1/4 of what a real computer does, and there's your answer

Tables are useless unless they use colour eink (coming out later this year), I dont see the point of a tablet without eink, you already have a phone & laptop so why would you want another device, now if it had color eink the power would last for over 5 days & be easy on your eyes.

What I got out of this clip is that being able to formulate complete and proper sentences on national television is not a job requirement of our nation's CEOs.... (?)
