After launching at AT&T earlier this year, ZTE’s Android-powered projector and hotspot combo device is now headed for Verizon.
The ZTE Spro 2 with support for Verizon’s network is available for $599 without a commitment or $499 with a two-year contract. The Spro 2 for Verizon is largely similar to the AT&T model when it comes to specs, packing a 5-inch 1280x720 display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a 6300mAh battery. It runs on Android 4.4 — complete with Google Play access — and a 6300mAh battery, can project images up to 120 inches in size, and it can connect up to 10 devices to Verizon’s LTE network.
We’ve seen a lot of mobile hotspot devices in the past, but hotspots with a built-in projector are a bit more rare. This combo could be useful to some folks, though, like traveling businesspeople that need to give presentations.
Speaking of businesspeople, ZTE is holding an “Ugliest Conference Room Makeover” contest to celebrate the launch of the Spro 2. The winner will get a makeover for their conference room that’s worth $50,000. To enter, you just need to send a photo or video of your ugly conference room to makeover.zteusa.com, and include a description of why the makeover would benefit your workplace
