Motorola Solutions, Inc.

Schaumburg, Ill.Oct. 31, 2014Motorola Solutions, Inc. unveiled the Symbol TC70 touch computer—the industry’s first enterprise-class mobile computer running the Android KitKat operating system—combining the ease of use of a smartphone with the purpose-built durability, reliability and performance that businesses demand. Designed to boost efficiency and customer service in the retail, wholesale and manufacturing industries, the TC70 is supported by more than 50 certified applications, including price and inventory checks, line busting, assisted selling, workforce management and inventory management.

Features include:

  • A large 4.7-inch Corning Gorilla Glass 2 high-resolution display that can automatically adjust to changing conditions so it can be used with wet fingers, gloves or a stylus.
  • Voice over IP (VoIP)-ready and equipped with Extensions (Mx) by Motorola Solutions, providing an added layer of security, manageability, data capture and wireless software features. Mx Data Capture makes it easy for application developers to integrate bar code scanning, signature capture, image capture and payment processing. In addition to supporting all standard Wi-Fi security protocols, Mx Security helps protect business data and network access with URL filters, communication management and sensor lock down.
  • Motorola’s most advanced imaging engine and innovative data capture technology, which help mobile workers quickly capture signatures, photos, videos and virtually any 1D/2D bar code at an extended range.
  • Motorola’s new Workforce Connect Push-To-Talk (PTT) Express that enables the device to serve as a two-way radio right out of the box via Wi-Fi.
  • A fully submersible IP67 sealing, the ability to withstand high drops to concrete and exclusive PowerPrecision batteries. The TC70 is built for all-day use on the retail store floor, and in the backroom or any warehouse, distribution center or manufacturing plant.
  • Availability with a comprehensive family of accessories, including holsters, a magnetic stripe reader (MSR) for mobile payment and trigger handles ideal for scan-intensive applications. It can also be used with Motorola’s new ShareCradle, a multi-slot charging system that accommodates multiple battery charge options and future Motorola mobile computers, making backroom management easy and cost-effective.
  • Application design and porting services for Android and RhoMobile Suite, which provides powerful development tools built from the ground up for enterprise mobility applications.

Girish Rishi, senior vice president of enterprise solutions, Motorola Solutions, said, “Customers who tried consumer products found that it cost them more money in the long run as the total cost of ownership (TCO) does not compare to enterprise-class devices. The TC70 delivers the mobile experience that customers desire with smartphone usability, optimized voice and data capture functionality, durability and longer lifecycles. By combining the features of the TC70 with Android’s KitKat operating system and the expanding library of enterprise applications, mobile workers have the mobile computer necessary to accomplish more than ever.”
