A mediocre projector hotspot that appeals to few

65

The LivePro is the best product of its kind... because it's the only product of its kind. To ZTE's credit, it came up with a crazily unique device that nobody's ever seen before. Most consumers won't find much interest in it, but Sprint likes it because it adds variety to its existing lineup and introduces a product category that none of the other carriers have explored. Unfortunately, the few who might find the LivePro useful may be turned off by its short battery life, high price and aging specs. It's a device that could catch the attention of the corporate world -- if it's done correctly.

The Sprint LivePro is a combination mobile hotspot, projector, and Android tablet. It's one of the most versatile mobile devices ever created, but it's pricey and doesn't excel at any one task.

We held it for a few minutes at a ZTE meeting, and it does indeed feel quite lightweight, which will be good for business travelers who yearn to pack light.

True, the demand for such a product isn't exactly white-hot, but because this is first time we've seen a portable Wi-Fi unit attached to a projector, the device is compelling nonetheless. It'll be interesting to see what US carriers will offer it ...
