McGraw Hill CEO confirms Apple Tablet

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2010

If anyone is likely to know about the Apple tablet, it would be Harold McGraw, CEO of McGraw-Hill, since they publish all kinds of books and you want stuff to read on that tablet, right? Makes sense. In an interview with CNBC, the McGrawster mentioned that the tablet will make an appearance at the upcoming event, which isn’t news, but he did also mention that the OS used will be similar to the iPhone. But will it use the iPhone OS, or is it just loosely based on it?

Also, 95% of all the publishers eBooks are going to be available on the tablet, which makes for a great library of diverse content. There you have it. Confirmation from a dude who should know.

Lala to give iPhones, Apple tablets an online locker?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on January 19th, 2010

No one seemed to know exactly what Apple intended to do with Lala after it bought the company, but now it looks like Apple may be looking to use it for an online locker for users’ music. Where users will be able to access collections anywhere, through a web browser, or through the iPhone, Apple tablet etc.

Everything would be stored in the cloud, so users could free up memory on their devices. Since customers already own the music, Apple won’t need to renegotiate with labels to get sharing rights. Microsoft has a similar service, but it’s not the same thing. Microsoft charges a $15 monthly fee for a Zune Pass, which offers you unlimited access to the entire Zune Marketplace music catalog.

Apple to ship more iPads in 2011 than Android tablets combined?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2010

Looks like Apple will dominate the tablet market for at least the next year, according to Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley. He estimates that Apple will ship 13.4 million iPads in 2010 and 25.5 million in 2011. The closest to Apple is Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, which will reach 1.5 million by the end of the year and move another six million in 2011.

The combined Android platform fares a bit better, with Dell and Motorola contributing two million and three million tablets of their own next year, but Apple will still have most of the sales. This is due its headstart and its positive UI experience.

Apple files patent for a multi-touch tabletIt’s far from the first time that Apple has filed patents for some kind of tablet computer. It’s been described in the past as a large iPhone, or as a full tablet, but these latest images look like a large mobile internet device that would be pretty neat. Most of the 52-page filing is in regards to the touchpad.

The device would be large enough to read easily and use, but also thin and light. One of the images has an interesting virtual keyboard. Some of the illustrations show a tablet Mac with a full windowing interface, where interface windows can be enlarged, shrunk, moved, and cycled, rather than being locked in place like the iPhone.

In June the rumor was that Amazon isn’t getting enough parts for the production of the company’s upcoming tablet devices. But now it looks like Amazon has found the right suppliers and is reportedly buying all parts that it can to ramp up production of the 7 and 10-inch tablets.
