With the MC55, Motorola introduces a whole new level of flexibility and functionality to pocket sized digital assistants. The MC55 packs the power of a cell phone, camera, walkie-talkie, bar code reader and a mobile computer into a rugged device with sleek style and ergonomics. It increases productivity while streamlining tasks.
Measuring 5.78 inches x 3.03 inches x 1.06 inches and weighing 11.1 oz., the MC55 offers WLAN as well as Bluetooth for seamless connectivity while supporting data rates up to 54 Mbps. Running the Windows Mobile 6.5 Classic operating system, the device comes equipped with a 2400 mAh battery which gives it a standby time of 100 hours and talk-time of 6 hours. It also comes with an optional 3600 mAh upgrade and supports expandable memory storage of up to 16GB via microSD card.
The 2-MP autofocus high resolution color camera with flash meets the needs of workers who need to capture images. The 2D imager is convenient for capturing barcodes, signatures as well as photographs of products. Designed to support voice as well as data, the MC55 includes functionalities such as full duplex voice, Push-To-Talk, 1-to-1 calls as well as instant communications as a walkie-talkie. In addition to this, speakerphone and Bluetooth headset modes allow convenience and flexibility to meet the requirements of various jobs. The device also comes equipped with a highly accurate GPS chipset which provides users with best-in-class location based services.
The Motorola MC55 is a rugged device and can endure 4 feet drops onto concrete while also meeting and exceeding MIL-STD810G specifications. The MC55 can be tailored to specific needs thanks to its extensive line of accessories. The magnetic stripe reader facilitates on-the-spot processing of magnetic cards. The Motorola MC55 is a cost-justifiable and scalable addition to ever-changing mobility needs of any business.
The Motorola MC55 may also be referred to as the Symbol MC55 as Motorola acquired Symbol in 2006; it may also be referred to as the Zebra MC55 as Zebra then acquired the enterprise mobility business from Motorola in 2014.
