Six Turkish companies have made a joint proposal to bring tablet computers to schools in the country.

According to the Sabah newspaper, which cited industry minister Nihat Ergun as its source, the group is made up of Arcelik, Vestel, Netas Telekomunikasyon, Aselsan Elektronik Sanayi ve Ticaret, Casper, and Exper.

These companies are to collaborate with the Turkish government and Sabah suggested that the government may give preference to locally manufactured tablets.

Back in August, Turkey announced its Faith Project, which aims to bring 15 million tablets to 600,000 classes across 40,000 schools in the next four years.

The Turkish government is already believed to have held positive meetings with representatives from Apple and Microsoft.
