Apple eyeing $4 billion iPad deal in Turkey

Good grief!!

BGR

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is reportedly going to travel to Turkey in February to attend the official opening of the first retail store in the country, but also to negotiate a $4 billion iPad deal with the country’s officials, Turkish publication Emlakkulisi (via AppleInsider) reported. Apple’s iPad could be a solution for Turkey’s “FATIH Project,” which aims to bring modern computing devices to classrooms. Should Apple win the bid, the Turkish government will buy 10.6 million tablets in a first phase, followed by a second 2 million to 2.5 million iPad purchase. The deal would be worth between $3 billion and $4 billion to Apple over the course of four years. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has already seen Apple’s headquarters in California back in May, during a visit that was likely related to the FATIH education project.
