ZTE has been a staple of CES over the past few years, slowly iterating on it’s hotspot-projector combo options always showing up. The SPro2 is their latest iteration and it brings a number of improvements to the device. They’ve upped pretty much every spec you can find on the device, it offers 200 Lumens, with a 1280×720 resolution. The battery is a 6,300 mAH battery, which should provide a lot of room for keeping it charged for hours at a time. The hotspot built-in is slightly improved as well, offering 4G LTE connectivity with support for up to 10 WiFi devices.
A device like this is a lifesaver for business customers, giving them the freedom and flexibility to do a presentation anywhere, anytime. The 200 lumens should be bright enough for a small presentation in a moderately lit room, while the Android system onboard and LTE connectivity give it flexibility to download presentations and play them back with ease.
The Android system is a fairly standard system, it has Google Play built-in meaning you can download any app you might have on your phone or tablet, offering TONS of options for playing back content.
The SPro2 also has an HDMI input for when you need a full sized laptop to do a presentation from. The hotspot built-in is a great tool for anyone on the go as it gives you connectivity in almost any situation.
AT&T hasn’t announced pricing or availability for this yet but we expect it to be within $400-$550 and available probably Q2 of 2015.
We think this will be a solid device, but only if it lives up to the brightness and feature set they claim, we’ll get our hands on one as soon as their available.
