Great news. It's easier than easy for mobile phone manufacturers to add the ability to write in Turkish, as that just means being able to use the extra letters ç, ğ, ı, and ş. Turkish has ö and ü as well but those already exist in other languages.
Two quick parts from the article:
MOBİSAD (Mobile Communications Tools and Scientific Technology Businessmen's Association) announced that from 1 July 2009 permission would not be given to imports of mobile phones that don't offer Turkish language support.
In the statement it said that it would not affect the supply and sales of devices brought in before then, but that mobile phones from this time would not be able to be imported if they did not have Turkish language support.
