Today is the big Apple Tablet launch day, as far as we’re concerned and although nobody from Apple confirmed it, other officials from third party companies did. One of them is McGraw-Hill’s CEO, who recently claimed in an interview with CNBC that his company’s textbooks will be on the Apple Tablet and that the device will run the iPhone OS.

He talks about these things in the video below (2m 50s):

The man claims that Apple will make the big announcement today and that his company has been working with the Cupertino firm for quite a while. Apparently, they’ll deliver e-books on the new platform, opening the tablet up for the “higher education market, the professional market”.

So… we expect the tablet not only to reach gadget freaks, but also students, colleges, hospitals, professors and other market segments.
