News Leak Confirms Apple Tablet Will Run iPhone OS

McGraw-Hill CEO confirmed what we assumed: The Apple tablet is coming and it runs an OS similar to that found on the iPhone

A report on news network CNBC confirmed this Tuesday that Apple's highly anticipated and long rumored tablet will be shown tomorrow.

During the report, CNBC interviewed CEO of McGraw-Hill Harold McGraw, who let slip that the immensely speculated tablet will make an appearance at Apple's upcoming press event and explained that the device's operating system (OS) will be similar to that on the iPhone.

This unsurprising confirmation (just in case we needed it) arrives just one day ahead of Apple's ridiculously-anticipated press event, where head-honcho Steve Jobs will take to the stage to reveal the companies "latest creation", putting an end to months of press hysteria.

Publisher McGraw-Hill has been involved with Apple for some time. However, up until now no publisher has confirmed any further involvement. Clearly Harold McGraw didn't get the memo, as when asked about the tablet he openly said that Apple will "make their announcement tomorrow" adding that the tablet is "based on the iPhone operating system" and that his company has several e-books ready for the device. You can catch the full interview here, in which Mr. McGraw describes the tablet as "really terrific".

All will be revealed tomorrow, but until then why not partake in some last-minute speculation? Let us know your predictions on cost, specifications, and the possible tablet name in the comments!

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
