    AppleInsider’s staff has caught an interesting report from Turkish language publication emlakkulisi.com. According to it, Tim Cook and some top Apple executives will be in Turkey next year to meet with President Abdullah Gül to discuss about the "FATIH Project," which has been created to replace blackboards and textbooks with modern computing devices, such as the iPad. Back in May, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has paid a visit to Apple’s headquarters, probably to see if Apple’s latest technological advancements were worthy to consider iPads for the FATIH project.

    At the moment, nothing has been made official, but if Turkey indeed looks to include iPads in such an important education deal, then probably more countries will follow, once a successful example has been set. Overall, Apple could deliver for the Turkish government more than 13 million iPads over a four-year period.
