Cook will reportedly visit Turkish President Abdullah Gül to discuss the country's 'FATIH Project,' which is an initiative to replace textbooks and other aspects of the classroom with tablets and computers. Apple is hoping to score a deal with the Turkish government to make the iPad Turkey's choice.
According to the report, Turkey is looking to purchase 10.6 million tablets initially, with hopes of buying 2-2.5 million more in a second wave. Over the course of four years, the deal could cost the government (and tax payers) an estimated $3 - $4 billion.
In addition, CEO Tim Cook will also be visiting the first Turkish Apple Retail Store set to launch early next year in Istanbul's Zorlu Center. The company just recently launched an Online retail store for Tukey a few months ago.
