mLearning (Mobile Learning) in Korea

Well, I had predicted that it would happen: mobile devices being used to enhance the learning environment, in this case with the introduction of a Personal Multimedian Player (PMP). As usual these days in the mobile world, I suppose, the trend is being led up by Korea: Smart Mobs: Mobile learning that links to a Korea Times report stating that students can: "use personal gadgets to study instead of textbooks on the bus or subway." I wonder if they're IPv6 devices, it sounds from the report that they are more like MP3 players with video that are not always on-line. The same device seems to be marketed as an iRiver PMP-100 outside Korea (that's the picture).
