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!

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
