Technological convergence refers to a trend where some technologies having distinct functionalities evolve to technologies that overlap, i.e. multiple products come together to form one product, with the advantages each initial component. In other words, we're witnessing convergence when seeing that a smartphone is not only a voice device, but also contains e.g. an MP3 player, an e-book reader, radio, GPS. These devices are often referred to as converged devices.
