McGraw-Hill chief lets information slip

Apple iPad/iSlate details revealed – video
Some details of the forthcoming new Apple product, rumoured to be named the iPad or iSlate, have been revealed on US TV.

Terry McGraw, head of publishing company McGraw-Hill, revealed in an interview with CNBC (watch it by clicking below) that the product was going to be based on the operating system of the iPhone, and would be able to display book content to read.

Apple are holding a press conference later today (January 27) to reveal details of the new product.

"The tablet is going to be based on the iPhone operating system, and so it will be transferable," he said. "We have a consortium of ebooks – we have 95 per cent of all our materials that are in ebook format on that one – so with the tabloid you're going to open up the higher education market, the professional market. The tabloid, the tablet is going to be just really terrific."

It unclear whether McGraw was using the words "tabloid" and "tablet" to refer to a specific product name.
