Motorola Solutions TC55 Overview
When using a smartphone in harsh environments you need a device you can rely on.
Consumer products are not designed to be used outdoors in conditions which are challenging. The Motorola Solutions TC55 is different. It is water proof, drop resistant, and has all the business grade functionality you need to be productive.
The screen has been designed to be easy to view outside and adapts to the finger input. So you can use the device wearing gloves, while it is raining, and, of course, with your finger tip. Business level security and manageability ensures the TC55 can be integrated easily into your enterprise with the minimum of fuss.
The screen is the primary interface when using your smartphone and you need to be able to access it in all environments. Motorola Solutions has included a 4.3” high resolution display which uses cutting edge HAST LCD technology.This ensures the screen is bright indoors and outside, while consuming significantly less power. Reflections in direct sunlight are reduced by the transflective properties of the screen improving image clarity and viewing. While the capacitive touch panel also has the ability to adapt to the environment so you use it while wearing gloves, using wet or dry fingers and also a stylus.
Having a high protection rating is critical for a business device like the Motorola Solutions TC55. It features an IP67 sealing rating for water and ingress protection which you can really on. While the military standard (MIL STD 810G) drop protection enables the device to withstand, up to, 4ft/1.2 metre drops onto concrete.
Protection like this manages your investment and means that if the phone is dropped into a puddle it should survive. If this wasn’t enough the screen is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 2 to provide resistant against scratches and scuff marks which can be encountered within a busy environment. All of these features will provide you with a significant amount of protection, but if you need more the Protective Boot can be purchased which encases the device and provides storage for a stylus.
While using your phone in difficult environments you need to be able to make and receive phone calls. Dual microphones have been included which benefit from noise-cancellation technology, so that you can be heard in loud situations with crystal clear sound.
Motorola Solutions has also ensured that the audio of the TC55 is superior to other smartphones by placing dual front-facing speakers on it. These deliver up to four times the volume of popular smartphones.
Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) is included providing an easy to learn interface and a host of features. This includes a large quantity of business apps which can be quickly downloaded and utilised. The Android environment is reliable and secure for consumers, but business require additional features and these are catered for with the MX extensions. This makes the environment even more robust and makes it easier to manage within businesses.
Multiple users can securely log into the device enabling the usage of it to be maximised with shift workers. Proxy and VPN technologies have been implemented with additional security so they can be used with confidence. 256-bit AES encryption government grade protection is provided and you can also remotely wipe the device in the event that it is ever lost. These features guarantee that your critical data is kept secure.
The latest hardware is needed to fully utilise business apps. Motorola Solutions has chosen to include a 1.5 GHz dual core processor. This enables the TC55 to start up in approximately 17 seconds so you are not hanging around waiting.
It also benefits from the inclusion of 1GB RAM and 8 GB of Flash storage. The latter can be supplemented with, up to, a 32 GB microSD card, increasing the potential storage available to 40GB. A large longer lasting 2940 mAH battery is provided as standard. This ensures you receive at least one, possibly even two days usage between charges.
Business class data capturing improves productivity and the Motorola Solutions TC55 features multiple methods of capture. Integrated 1D scanning is supplemented with an 8 MP camera (optimized for 2D capture) and Near Field Communication (NFC). This makes it possible easily to obtain data from various sources. The 1D scanner has been designed to be easy to use while also enabling interaction with the screen. It is, in combination with the camera, able to read all standard barcodes.
If you need to develop dedicated business applications you will be glad to hear the RhoMobile Suite is supplied. This suite enables the quick creation and deployment of applications across a wide range of hardware, as it provides cross platform development. You no longer have to worry about the look of your applications on different hardware with varying screen size as they will look and operate exactly the same whatever system you install them on – iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and any future environments.
For total peace of mind the TC55 is provided with Service from Start. This robust support service ensures you are able to maximise the usage of the product and limit downtime. With its dependable 3 day turn around service and expert phone support you know you have the backup needed to get the job down.
