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
