Apple's executives just sealed a major deal with the world's largest wireless carrier, China Mobile, but now the company is reportedly already looking at new markets for expansion. A new rumor suggests that Apple CEO Tim Cook and other execs are gearing up for a visit to Turkey, where the team will meet with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to discuss an iPad deal that could be worth as much as $4 billion, in addition to opening a the country's first physical Apple Store.
Turkey is reportedly looking to bring Apple's slate into more classrooms and has an initiative called the "Fatih Project," that will use iPads to bring more technology into schools over the span of four years. Specifically, Turkey wants to replace aging textbooks and even blackboards with new products like the iPad. In the U.S., school districts have also adopted the iPad, though students often surprise administrators by removing the pre-installed security apps and using the devices for entertainment instead of learning.
Right now, Turkey is interested in acquiring about 10.6 million iPads, according to local news outlet emlakkulisi.com, at a value of around $3 to $4 billion, AppleInsider said. Apple no doubt wants to get its iPads in as many hands as possible, particularly because they are a perfect vehicle for its software and services, though Apple has yet to confirm its plans, if any, for Turkey.
