Remember ZTE’s unusual Spro 2 mobile hotspot/projector that’s powered by Android? Well after announcing its intention to sell the device back several months ago, AT&T has come forward with its launch plans for the unique device.
The ZTE Spro 2 will launch at AT&T on April 24 at a price of $399.99 without a two-year contract. If you’d prefer to go the contract-free route, you can pony up $499.99 to avoid a commitment. Once you’ve got your unit, you can add it to your AT&T Mobile Share Value shared data plan for $10 per month.
So yeah, the ZTE Spro 2 is capable of projecting an image ranging from 5 inches to 120 inches in size with a native resolution of 1280x720. It’s also got auto focus and a 200 lumen brightness.

The Spro 2 runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat on a 5-inch 1280x820 display, and it’s got full access to the Google Play store to let you download any apps that you’d like. The unit is powered by a 2.1GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and a 6300mAh battery, and it’s also got 16GB of storage, microSD card support, and 2GB of RAM.
