Sprint’s LivePro Combines Pocket Projectors With Mobile Hotspot

Today’s business world isn’t the same as it was 20 years ago, or even 5 years ago for that matter. The business professional of today utilizes technology in ways would couldn’t have even thought possible in the past, especially when it comes to presentations. Gone are the days of story boards and physical presentations, pushed aside for things like PowerPoints and slide shows.

However, a lot of presentations these days rely on internet access for various things, which becomes a problem if you are presenting somewhere that doesn’t have internet (I know it’s hard to believe a place without internet but trust me, they still exist). But those troubles are now behind you as you now have the ability to purchase a combination pocket projector and mobile hotspot from Sprint that provides internet access through the carrier’s network.

Known as the Sprint LivePro, this pocket projector measures 4.7 by 4.7 inches and is 1.1 inches thick. In addition to that, the LivePro will offer a 10-inch to 10-foot projection display. There is also a 4-inch touchscreen on the device and a 5,000mAh lithium ion battery that can be used to charge other devices while the device itself runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, allowing you to access apps from Google Play.

An embedded speaker for audio is included though separate speakers can be paired with the device through Bluetooth or attached via a 3.5mm jack, according to Sprint. The LivePro also supports as many as 8 WiFi enabled devices simultaneously and content can be shared through HDMI, USB or wirelessly through WiFi Miracast. Users can also get content from the Cloud through WiFi directly from the device and stream video and audio content with a WiFi connection or data plan.

The LivePro will be on sale in select Sprint stores as well as online for $499.99. Qualified buyers can also use Sprint Easy Pay for $18.75 per month over 2 years. Data plans for the LivePro start at $34.99 per month for 3GB with 6GB and 12GB data plans costing $49.99 and $79.99, respectively.

According to Senior Vice President of Product Development at Sprint David Owens, “Whether it’s a boardroom proposal or backyard movie night, Sprint LivePro is a one-of-a-kind device that combines the enhanced LTE network capabilities of Sprint Spark with an easily portable projector that helps you get work done or keep the family entertained. Sprint LivePro has a high-quality projection display making it easy to share important information on a movie screen, wall or any other flat surface. Its mobile hotspot is powered by Sprint Spark, offering blazing-fast network speeds for downloading important videos or presentations on the web.”

For those of you who don’t know, Spark is a network upgrade that is intended to more than double the wireless broadband speed on the 4G LTE Sprint Spark network in the US by the end of 2014. In addition to that, it is also supposed to increase coverage and capacity significantly. Spark has been described as a mixture of TD-LTE and FD-LTE networks on three different frequencies (800MHz, 1900MHz and 2600MHz) and increase to extremely high capacity in very dense areas with TD-LTE 2600MHz.

The LivePro is perfect for business professionals as it allows them to literally present anywhere they need to whenever they need to. Mobile presentations are definitely impressive and that becomes even more so when you add the LivePro’s mobile hotspot, ability to connect 8 devices simultaneously and download apps from Google Play directly onto the projector.
