In 2019, many companies will be upgrading their handheld mobile computers for two big reasons:
Whatever your reason for upgrading may be, if you’re still using industrial handheld mobile computers, there’s one new device that our experts at Quest Solution highly recommend.
It’s the MC9300 ultra-rugged Android touch mobile computer from Zebra Technologies.
Zebra’s MC9300 is a next-generation device that combines simple, easy-to-use Android touch computing with an ultra-rugged handheld form factor, including familiar keypad data entry and a pistol grip for warehouse applications. Like previous industrial handhelds, it also includes 1D and 2D barcode scanning, but it offers far easier and more efficient touch interactions, plus better processing power, Wi-Fi performance, and battery life than preceding devices.
Here’s a quick overview of the MC9300’s many advantages, including its unique improvements over previous Zebra devices:
Android Touch Simplicity
If you’ve used a smartphone or tablet, you know how much simpler and easier it is to use than a traditional handheld computer or PC. Zebra has brought that ease of use to an ultra-rugged industrial handheld mobile computer with the MC9300.
Its large, 4.3-inch screen and Android touch interface make business apps as easy to use as any smartphone app, and you can even use a finger, stylus, or gloved finger to interact with the screen, even if it’s wet.
Vastly More Processing Power and Memory
The MC9300 also has an ultra-powerful 8-core processor and provides up to eight times the RAM and 16 times the Flash memory of previous-generation devices.
The MC9300 is the most rugged device that Zebra has ever built, with an ultra-rugged design that even withstands the extremes of cold storage and hazardous environments.
Full-Shift Battery Life
Powered by Zebra’s PowerPrecision+ battery technology, the MC9300 delivers the most battery power in its class, with nearly twice the run time of Zebra’s predecessor MC9200. It also provides faster charging, battery statistics, and a free app for better power management.
Super Wi-Fi Connectivity and Speed
Using MU-MIMO technology and Zebra’s WorryFree Wi-Fi, the MC9300 provides increased Wi-Fi range and speed, near-instant app response times, and exceptional voice quality.
Lifetime Security Updates
When you migrate to Android with Zebra’s MC9300, you get 10 years of guaranteed security patches and OS updates, thanks to Zebra’s LifeGuard™ for Android. It provides 5 more years of support than Google’s default support period, plus end-to-end control of the Android over-the-air update process.
Unbelievably Easy Terminal Emulation
Zebra’s MC9300 makes it incredibly easy to migrate your legacy terminal “green screen” apps to Android. Zebra’s All-Touch Terminal Emulation helps you migrate your TE apps in minutes or hours, converting them to touch-based apps. It all happens with no coding or back-end modifications required. The software walks you through the whole process and lets you customize your apps, screens and interfaces exactly the way you want them.
