How can you improve the design of a Wi-Fi hotspot device? Obviously the answer is to add a DLP pico projector, of course. Okay, so that’s probably not the first new feature you’d think to add to a Hotspot, but that’s not stopping ZTE.
The ZTE Projector Hotspot not only can provide access to 4G LTE connectivity for up to 8 devices, it also doubles as an 120-inch image/video projector with a brightness of 100 lumens. There’s even a 4-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen built into the device that is powered by Android 4.2.
Aside from projecting Android, the 1080p projector also has an HDMI port and WiFi display support. There’s also a USB-A slot, headphone jack, audio output, Bluetooth and a 5,000 mAh battery.
So when will the ZTE Projector Hotspot arrive? No word on exactly when and where we’ll see this debut just yet, other than it’s likely it will show up sometime in the first half of this year. It’s also unclear what carriers ZTE plans to partner with for the hotspot functionality or how much it will set consumers back.
What do you think, if the price was low enough would you be interested in this unique hotspot device?
