Apple Announcement January 27, 2010

Apple’s Steve Jobs is resting and preparing for his big day, many have called it the biggest announcement Apple CEO Steve Jobs has ever made. At least he is said to have been quoted as saying such.

So far we have pretty much confirmed through the “leak” by McGraw-Hill CEO of having worked with Apple for “a while” on the iSlate.  Also, we could be seeing an iPhone/iSlate OS 4.0 released to support some new features and functionality.

The announcement should commence from San Francisco, at approx 10am.

Apple only says that it will be holding an event in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater at 1 p.m. Eastern Time and 10 a.m. Pacific Time to debut its “latest creation.”

Live blogging and streaming potentials:

Could it called the iPad?

Jason Calacanis went on a tear twittering about the new device making numerous claims that could be on the fringe of violating his non-disclosure, but Jason is known to take it to the edge.

Read some of his tweets here:

– Apple Tablet has thumbpads on each side for mouse guestures, reads fingerprint for security. Up to 5 profiles by finerprint for family.

– there are 2cameras: one in front and one in back (or it may be one with some double lens) so you record yourself and in front of u.

– apple tablet is oled + back has solar pad for recharging, but it really doesn’t work quickly. More a gimmic. Verizon+att,wifi yes!

– I can tell u the battery life is great in ebook reading mode but not great when on wifi or playing games. 2-3hrs

– apple tablet is running an iphone os flavor with ability to have multiple apps running at same time (ie pandora, browser

– The price will be 599, 699 and 799 depending on size and memory in apple tablet. Also, wireless keyboard + monitor connection for tv

– Note to press: No, not going to break my NDA w/ Apple/steve so u can get  jump on announcement. It is the most *amazing* device ever.

– The best part ofthe apple tablet as beta user has been the built in HDTV tuner and pvr, and the chess game.

– Also, the apple tablet is really amazing for newspapers. Video conferencing is super stable, but nothing new.

– apple tablet connects to other tablets over wifi for gaming. There will be LAN parties with these things, people playingFirst personshooters

McGraw-Hill CEO Terry McGraw confirms Mac Tablet on MSNBC

Maybe you saw it already?

The CEO of McGraw-Hill confirmed the Mac Tablet on MSNBC, yes, the one that is to be released/announced by Steve Jobs “Tomorrow”. Is all this part of a master plan? Is Steve Jobs angry right now?

Most would probably say that this was not the best thing to happen, but what has happened? Is Apple stock trading higher in after hours trading?

Here’s Mr. McGraw’s response verbatim:
“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 is 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.”

You can come to your own conclusions. As an Apple stock holder this is
