With tomorrow being heralded across the blogosphere as one of the most momentous potential product announcements of all time, a bit of a surprise occurred during a CNBC interview. The surprise was not so much what was being revealed as it was who was the one revealing it. Howard McGraw III, CEO of the famous textbook maker and financial company McGraw-Hill, confirmed everyone’s assumptions about tomorrow’s announcement while being interviewed by CNBC’s Erin Burnett:
Yes, they’ll make their announcement tomorrow on this one [tablet]. 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.
This essentially seems to be a guarantee that the Apple Tablet will be similar to a larger iPod touch. Also he stated McGraw-Hill has big plans to send its library over to whatever app store would come with the tablet. Now all that is left to do is wait for Jobs to deliver the final announcement tomorrow.
