In need of a projector? Prefer it to run Android? If you answered yes, then ZTE has your ticket with the upcoming WiFi only model of the SPRO projector. They launched the wireless carrier model last year under the Sprint Live Pro Android projector that released on Sprint and was compatible with their CDMA network. The Sprint Live Pro could double as a wireless hotspot for a connection to 3G/4G data for your devices too. Although this one won’t have the need for such a capability as the WiFi it can connect to will also be able to connect your other WiFi only devices, it is WiFi only so it comes in at $399 instead of the $450 Sprint was asking for its version of the SPro.
The WiFi only Live Pro will be sporting a native version of the Android OS, and it’ll have access to the Google Play Store as well as most of the apps within like Docs, Sheets, Slides, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Facebook, Google+, Twitter and more. Whatever apps you’d have the need to project onto a wall or a large surface, the SPro should be able to compensate you with that capability. Even though this is meant to display things onto a larger surface, it still comes with a touch display that is 4-inches in size so you can access content, and the screen carries a WVGA resolution. Although its own screen is small, you can use it to project the picture up to anywhere from 10-inches to 120-inches in size.
It’s got 4GB of RAM on the inside and has 1GB of internal storage space, which isn’t much but should be sufficient. It’s also got one HDMI port and a USB port for plugging in a flash drive if needed, and it also comes with a microSD card slot so you can add additional storage past the 1GB. It’s powered by a Qualcomm dual-core snapdragon processor, and it has an embedded non-removable 5,000mAh battery. It’s running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean still so don’t expect the use of some apps that may require Android 4.4 and above. You can pre-order these now through ZTE, but they won’t officially launch until January 6th so you still have a few days wait before they’ll likely begin getting processed and shipped out.
