US giants might bid for 15million tablets for schools in Turkey

Top executives from US computer giants like Apple, Microsoft and Intel meet up with Turkish minister to discuss a bid for providing 15million tablets to the schools in Turkey

Turkish Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan just completed a tour through Seattle and Silicon Valley and while there, met up with computer giants like Apple, Microsoft and Intel to discuss about a possible bidding for up to 15million tablets – as reported by Engadget. These tablets might be provided to the schools in Turkey as part of their education program called FATIH (Movement of Enhancing Opportunities and Improving Technology).

Although there was no official statement, Engadget reports that the Turkish minister left with a good impression and Apple and MS officials might visit Turkey shortly to discuss the bid in more detail and also probably scan the target environment a little.

Apple also reportedly expressed interest in manufacturing iPhones and iPads in Turkey.
