When a regular projector simply won't do at your next business meeting, there's the ZTE Spro 2. This mini projector has a touchscreen and runs Android with full access to the Play Store. It's probably a really slick way to project slides on the wall, but I feel like someone unnecessarily dropped some vowels from the name (or maybe a hyphen or something).
The Spyro 2 is versatile, compact multi-function smart projector from ZTE. Running on Google's Android OS, it offers both mobile hotspot and portable projector functionality in a compact, aesthetically-pleasing package.
The design is simple yet attractive, and it's also fairly compact, measuring just 5.1 x 5.2 x 1.5 inches (12.9 x 13.2 x 3.81 cm).
There's a 5-inch touchscreen on board to interact with the device. The device's pico-projector has a native resolution of 1,280 x 720 (HD LCD), and is able to project content up to a screen size of 120 inches, with a brightness of 200 lumens.
The Spyro 2 packs a fair amount of power, running on a 2.1-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad core processor with Adreno 330 graphics.
The ZTE Spyro 2 is based on Android 4.4.2 Kitkat and is one of its kind in the projector Line-up. The fact that the smart projector runs on Android allows users to access the wealth of content available through the Google Play Store, as well as media apps such as Netflix.
The Spyro 2 is fueled by a mega 6,300 mAh battery, which promises to give enough live and power supply for such smart projectors.
Aside from its appeal as a projector, it can also be a mobile hotspot. Up to ten devices can connect to the device at once to access the high-speed LTE 4G connection. Devices can connect to the smart projector via Bluetooth, or through the integrated HDMI or USB 3.0 ports. It also has 3.5mm headset jack.
The ZTE smart projector 2 flaunts a 16GB ROM and has a 2GB RAM which can be expanded via microSD card. That's more than enough storage for a projector.
The ZTE smart projectors price has not been announced yet but it will be available this year, might get launched in Q2, 2015 at the most.
