McGraw-Hill CEO, Harold McGraw III, was recently interviewed by CNBC, when asked about their textbooks on Apple’s tablet he replied:
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.
The bit above comes in at about the 2 minute 50 second mark.
There has been some speculation that this was a controlled leak by Apple. And I doubt it, this doesn’t show any signs of a controlled leak. Instead, this has “big mouth” written all over it.
