Turkish actually has a dotted i and an undotted ı. The dotted İ is even dotted when capitalized.
Yes, they're pronounced differently. Turkish has plenty of diacritical marks that unfortunately are often discarded outside of Turkey and the Turkish communities, leaving you guessing at the correct pronunciation of stuff. It's one of my personal pet peeves with news papers, magazines and sites, also regarding Czech.
