Today, the company announces that applications for the Fund are open and you can submit your project or idea for assessment. Generally, ZTE says it is looking for 5 to 10 startups / developers who have some competitive or differentiating ideas for apps that can be pre-installed on the company's smartphones, phablets, including the smart projector Spro 2 (a portable projector with hotspot capabilities, running on Android 4.4.2).
