Report: Cook to visit Turkey over potential iPad deal

Apple CEO Tim Cook will reportedly visit Turkey in 2014, according to Turkish site emlakkulisi.com. Cook will meet with Turkish President Abdullah Gül regarding the country’s Fatih Project, which plans on acquiring 10.6 million tablet computers for the country’s education program. Cook will be looking to secure the deal, which could be worth $4 billion. It’s also noted that Cook will visit Turkey’s first Apple Store in Istanbul during his visit. It’s notable that Turkey has seen three cabinet ministers resign in recent days, with one of the ministers calling for Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan to resign, as Reuters reports, political upheaval that could threaten the tablet deal.
