PLDT Home Fibr TVolution Unboxing

PLDT Home Fibr TVolution first issue
PLDT Home recently launched its new complementary component for the #ConnectedHome called TVolution. This device connects to your existing modern LCD / LED / Plasma TV via the HDMI input and provides an Andorid OS interface where one can surf the internet and consume all sorts of digital media like streaming music, movies, sports events, rich media websites, games, social networking sites and productivity and communications software.

Here's the commercial video which aired on Philippine prime-time TV.

You can use the Telpad or an Android or iOS phone as a remote control for TVolution by downloading the remote control app. You can connect a mouse and keyboard to the USB ports of your TVolution. This is highly recommended for full web surfing and for creating documents.
