Then at 2:50 into the video, McGraw is asked about the company's dealings with Apple:
CNBC: And briefly, before we go, Apple... apparently you may get textbooks on the tablet that's comming out.
McGraw: Yeah, Very exciting. Yes, they'll make their announcement tomorrow on this one. 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. So what you are going to be able to do now, we have a consortium of e-books, and we have 95% of all our materials that are in e-book format on that one. So now with the tablet you're going to open up the higher education market, the professional market. The tablet is going to be just really terrific.
Separately, Engadget.com has what looks to be some incredibly convincing photos of the device. It looks like a giant iPod Touch or iPhone. The site reports that it's about 9 or 10 inches in size based one of the photos that shows an iPhone sitting on top of the tablet. It also appears to have a built-in camera opposite the home button.
