ZTE stuck a tablet on the back of a projector for no apparent reason

Here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona there’s always the weird and wonderful — this year’s no different. Chinese gadget maker ZTE has a curious new device: an Android tablet attached to the back of a projector.

It’s called the Spro Plus, and on the back you’ll find an 8.4-inch AMOLED touch-screen with a 2K resolution and it has a 12100mAH battery, though it’s unclear how long that’ll last if you’re projecting.

It has some pretty loud speakers onboard (well, I could hear them over the MWC crowd at least), that might help if you’re watching a film, but it’s unlikely you’ll actually want to do that.

I couldn’t really figure out who would want or need this thing, given that attaching a tablet to operate the entire life means it’s got a much shorter shelf life than your average projector and might slow down over time.

It could be useful for if you don’t want any peripherals lying around for getting a presentation done, but given that you’ll need to get the materials on there in the first place it’s a pretty hard sell.

There’s no price or date available for the projector, so if you’re really eager on it you’ll have to wait until a vague “Summer 2016” to get your own.
