Zebra Unveils Perfect Device for Migrating to Android Handheld Computing

In 2019, many companies will be upgrading their handheld mobile computers for two big reasons:

  1. The Windows Embedded Handheld operating system is reaching its end of life, and companies need to upgrade to new devices to migrate to a new, modern OS.
  2. Companies want to achieve better workflow productivity and efficiency, and today’s business apps often require more processing power, memory, and resources to power them. Fortunately, mobile devices get faster and more powerful with each generation, offering advanced capabilities that streamline and simplify data capture, data entry, and mobile workflows.

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.

Ultra-Rugged Durability

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.
