fablet

Convergence seems to be coming from the same company that shaped a generation through their music videos (yep, I remember them back in the old days) and reality shows (the stuff they show now), as Viacom’s MTV is partnering with  Swipe Telecom to produce a unique device: The MTV Volt.

Finally, the device we may have all been waiting for: a FABLET

*I believe this has some fantastic #mlearning potential and will be keeping an eye on this development!

Phone + Android Tablet + Television = FABLET

“MTV VOLT is a ‘made to order’ product for the generation that’s constantly communicating, entertaining and socializing. With features that address their needs and price-point that suits their pockets, we’re confident about MTV VOLT by Swipe, to generate a great response,” Sandeep Dahiya, Senior Vice President and Business Head (consumer products) – Viacom18

The MTV VOLT is the first Fablet device to feature an exclusive inbuilt TV-player, offering viewers on-the-go access to MTV content.

About kevin

A long-time technology enthusiast who, in the mid 80's, thought the internet might be something that would catch-on, so he taught himself programming. That started him on a very satisfying road as a course developer, trainer, online teacher and elearning evangelist. Thirty years later, he fancies himself to be a "futurist" and "thought leader".... those thoughts are more about learning that doesn't involve expensive technology and a vision of the future that makes education more critical than ever!
