Seven companies reportedly to bid in second phase of Turkey's Fatih project. [IntelliNews - Weekly Reports]
(IntelliNews - Weekly Reports Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Turkish daily Hurriyet reported that seven companies, including Samsung, Vestel, Casper-Exper-Probil, Telpa, Microsoft and Arcelik, will bid in the second phase of Turkey's so-called Fatih project to provide 10.6mn units of tablet PCs to the Turkish Ministry of Education.
Two companies, including Apple and Mobil-TelElektromed, have been eliminated since they do not have financial capability, the daily reported.
Earlier this month, Turkey's ministry of transportation, maritime affairs and communications collected the bids to buy 347,367 electronic boards within the scope of the so-called Fatih Project for use at Turkey's schools. Turkey's Vestel Elektronik informed in a filing with the Bourse Istanbul that it placed the lowest bid of TRY 999.7mn (EUR 342mn) in the tender. The deal is subject to the approval of the tender commission.
Last month, Telpa placed the lowest revised bid of TRY 409mn in the tender held by Turkey's ministry of education to buy 675,000 tablet PCs, 125,000 keyboards within the Fatih Project. Telpa would provide General Mobile brand products and planned to deliver 50,000 tablet PCs in December.
The government plans to replace blackboards and textbooks in schools with electronic boards and tablet PCs under the scope of the Fatih Project.
