CES 2014: ZTE Projector Hotspot is the Megazord of mobile devices

1:35 /

This is like no projector you've seen before, because it's also a hot spot and battery charger. CNET's Bridget Carey explains how this Android device is handy for work and play.

Hi. I'm Bridget Carey with CNET here at CES 2014 with your first look at a very unique product, the ZTE Hotspot and Projector. It's a hotspot projector in one, and it runs Android. So, basically, you need a sim card to have wireless access. And once you do, you can access all sorts of Android apps, whether you're a business person who needs PowerPoint or you're on a family vacation and you wanna load up Netflix. On the wall, the projection goes up to 120 inches at a resolution of 800x480 pixels. It's got a few other features, too. It has a very powerful battery inside. You can even charge your devices with the USB port on the back. The battery will last about 8 to 12 hours. It's a little over an inch thick. It's pretty light, actually. On the front, you have buttons to control the Android operating system, as well as the Power button and the button to start the projector. Very simple controls here. On the back, there's also an HDMI port. That lets you connect it to video game systems like the Xbox, the PlayStation so you could project your game. The hotspot will connect up to eight devices. It's an 802.11 Wi-Fi. It can get up to 4G LTE speeds. We don't know yet which U.S. carriers will be able to be compatible with this. ZTE says this should hit the U.S. and other markets by the end of 2014, but we don't have a price just yet. For CNET, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, I'm Bridget Carey.
