Apple CEO talks iPad, iPhone + Siri with Turkish president

Apple CEO Tim Cook met with Turkish President Abdullah Gül, discussing research and development possibilities in Turkey, among other issues. Cook also revealed that Apple’s first store in Turkey will open in Istanbul in April. Gül suggested Apple should consider Turkey for research and development, while also requesting a Turkish edition of Siri. Cook suggested that the iPhone and iPad should be excluded from Turkish luxury taxes. The two also discussed the country’s Faith Project for education; a previous report forecasting Cook’s visit claimed that Turkey might acquire 10.6 million tablet computers.

The visit was another high-profile overseas meeting for Cook. Apple’s CEO recently met with UAE Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny. [via Presidency of the Republic of Turkey]
