The Enterprise Mobility business from Motorola today announced the MC75, the latest addition to its portfolio of Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDA), developed for mobile enterprises that require connectivity around the world. The MC75 EDA will help organizations increase worker productivity and efficiency, reduce operational costs and errors, and enhance customer service by delivering simultaneous voice, data, GPS navigation, and camera-based document capture. Here is more info:
The MC75 combines high-speed access to voice and data with support for 3G networks based on the HSDPA and CDMA-EVDO (Rev A) standards for wireless communication. Equipped with 802.11a/b/g, a crisp color VGA display and a 2 megapixel digital auto-focus color camera, the new rugged EDA delivers the industry?s first mobile computer compatible with multiple 3G WAN network standards that captures high quality pictures, documents and signatures, as well as 1D and 2D bar codes. This unprecedented combination of real-time local and wide-area wireless communications coupled with advanced data capture capabilities enables businesses to improve workforce automation, reduce data errors, and enable productivity wherever work needs to get done.
The MC75 will enable global organizations with mobile workforces to standardize operations on a single mobile device, which will reduce support requirements, cost and complexity associated with multiple devices on numerous networks. Uniquely designed and offering a product lifecycle that extends well beyond that of a traditional consumer smartphone or PDA, the MC75 offers wireless connectivity, functionality, and manageability through Motorola?s Mobility Services Platform on a single handheld device. This reduction in capital and operational costs, combined with increased workforce productivity, will deliver maximum value to any organization?s investment.
The MC75 is based on Intel?s XScale PXA270 624 MHz processor and Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0 operating system to provide increased interoperability with existing enterprise infrastructure, enhanced security features, a flexible development platform and improved mobile messaging.
To help customers maintain peak performance, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Services offers Service from the Start with Comprehensive Coverage for the MC75. From the first day of the hardware purchase, customers can be assured that no matter what is damaged ? from broken displays and keypads to any internal and external components ? the repair is covered. This enhanced level of coverage significantly reduces unforeseen repair expenses, while providing investment protection and service peace of mind.
