    Does that mean we can't put any of out own movie/tv content on it?

    Why not? You can put your own TV/Movie content on an iPhone

    Any answers to your question would be pure speculation at this point. Very little is known about the operating system that the tablet will use. I suggest sitting back and tuning into the 1pm EST apple event. :)

    It's the only way to know for sure.

    I'm really hoping that it's not going to use the iPhone OS but I think all signs lead that it will. Sad day for me because that takes me out of the market completely :(

    On one of my Macs of course
    I think the OP is correct, in that the iPhone OS (a derivative of Mac OS X - Steve even referenced it as "Mac OS") has not been updated for consumers, much less developers like myself, for some months. An earlier rumor has it that the new tablet uses yet another derivative of Mac OS X and that Apple did not want anyone gleaning too much information about the upcoming tablet for the next iPhone OS update. I think that's a reasonable assumption.
