During Mobile Wolrd Congress 2016 earlier this year, Chinese manufacturer ZTE unveiled the Spro Plus portable smart projector, a portable Android-powered projector with an 8.4-inch display that can also act as a Wi-Fi hotspot. If you’re wondering what this new device has to do with Microsoft, a new report from Windows Central today explains that ZTE VP of Mobile Devices Waiman Lam suggested during the IFA Global Press Conference in Shenzhen that the Spro Plus and Windows 10 could be a good fit:
Specifically while discussing accessories you can use with the Spro Plus, such as a keyboard and mouse, Lam suggested that such a product with Windows 10 could be your complete portable PC. Nothing more, nothing to suggest that there is a Windows 10 version of the Spro Plus being made, but it was a curious comment to come from a senior figure.
Back at Mobile World Congress, ZTE introduced the Spro Plus as a device that “aims to provide a high level of entertainment and business opportunities for users” and added that the previous generation Spro1 and 2 sold over 500,000 units worldwide. We’re not sure if there really is a market for a tablet-projector hybrid running Windows 10. May this hypothetical device be a solution looking for a problem, or would you enjoy a chunky tablet that can also act as a projector?
