In an article written yesterday by senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker, he discussed a new project announced by the Turkish government. The project, called F@tih, is a plan for the country to purchase 18 million tablet devices for use by students, teachers, and administrators to aid in the education process. In this video, Eric tells us why this could be an incredible turning point in accelerating the trend away from PCs. After all, this may well be a generation of students skipping the PC entirely and operating solely on mobile devices. He also tells us that if this is successful in Turkey, it could be something seen soon in countries all over the world.
It would be a major coup for Apple if it could capitalize on this opportunity in Turkey, but as its tablets are definitely on the pricier side of the market, this is a contract the company might not get. There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and more importantly, your portfolio) going forward.
