You might recall that I reviewed Anker's first portable projector back in August. While it was sold under the company's 'Nebula' sub-brand, the Nebula Mars retained Anker's top-notch build quality and premium design. It certainly had a few problems, like the lack of a Google Play Store, but overall it was a good product.
A few weeks ago, AAXA Technologies contacted me, asking if I wanted to try out their P2-A portable projector. Like the Nebula Mars, it runs Android (a newer version, at that), but it's even smaller and less than half the price. I agreed, and not long after, the P2-A arrived at my front door. Read More
Projectors are usually bulky and immobile, but ZTE's Spro 2 can be easily brought wherever your heart desires. The Spro 2 is about 2.5 years old at this point, but there haven't really been many better ones launched. Now, you can get a Verizon LTE model for just $299.99 on eBay - about $300 off its MSRP, and $200 off the current going price. Read More
The ZTE Spro 2 was initially announced two years ago, and later available for sale through AT&T for $500 without a contract ($400 with an agreement). It's definitely an odd device - it's running Android with access to the Google Play Store, so you can project your favorite media apps without a connected device. Now you can get it for $399, $100 off the starting price. Read More
ZTE? Hello, yes, this is Verizon. Verizon Wireless. Mmhmm. We heard that you were selling a smart projector through AT&T. Yes, that's right, the ZTE Spro 2. We'd like to offer it too.
Huh, exclusive? It's been nearly three months. That's long enough. We have a larger network than AT&T. We cover more of the country, which means there's a better chance we'll connect with someone who actually knows what a smart projector is and wants one. How many have you guys sold with AT&T anyway?
Yeah, I already know about the thing. The guy at the AT&T store told me everything I needed to know. Read More
There has to be someone out there looking to sign a contract on a lightweight projector that's capable of running Android apps.
Wait, you don't even know what a smart projector is? Right... that might be a problem. Okay, I'm going to talk to my fellow AT&T execs and—you know what, screw it, we're going to sell this anyway. Someone out there is going to love it. I mean, what better way is there to impress your business clients than to whip out some cool, forward-looking piece of tech that no one else has even seen?
So yes, we, AT&T, will sell you a smart projector by the name of the ZTE Spro 2. Read More
