New Motorola MC45 for Enterprise Mobility

New Motorola MC45 for Enterprise Mobility

If you are looking for a rugged handheld take a look at the Motorola MC45 for Enterprise Mobility.

Motorola MC45 for Enterprise Mobility

 

MC45 joins Motorola’s packed line up of rugged devices that use Windows Mobile 6.5 as a platform for delivering line of businss applications to field based workers.

Sheldon Safir, Director of global solutions marketing at Motorola Solutions introduced the unit by describing it as having “aggressive pricing for full functionality”

MC45 ships with all the usual components you might expect from the major manufacturer in this sector. 3,080mAH Li-Ion battery a 600MHz chip with 256MB of RAM. Wi-Fi and WWAN along with a 1D scanner and numeric keypad.

 

What is it For ?

  1. Provides the Motorola Solutions channel with a weapon to fight off the unending stream of no name brand product coming out of the far east.
  2. Motorola have shifted huge quantities of their ES400 entry level EDA since it’s launch in 2010. They have no doubt noticed that this price/performance point is a real hit with enterprise users trying to justify buying a rugged handheld instead of a smartphone. MC45 is more of the same.
  3. Most enterprise mobility deployments still use Windows Mobile so the MC45 will help keep users on side until Windows 8 shows up and Android becomes more popular in this sector.

MC45 Appeal

  1. Great total cost of ownership proposition especially when wound up with a no fault maintenace contract.
  2. Size – Compared to the rugged stalwarts of the Motorola Solutions line up MC45 is larger than an ES400 but smaller than the MC67 and MC75 this will appeal to a large number of users.
  3. Keyboard – Most line of business apps need numeric data entry, the unit comes with a numeric keyboard with shifted Alpha capability
  4. Real 1D laser scanning. Still the best option for scan intensive applications.

Motorola Solutions Launch MC40 for Retail Enterprise Mobility

Motorola Solutions Launch MC40 for Retail Enterprise Mobility

The availability of Android based devices for line of business applications continues as Motorola launch the MC40 for retail enterprise mobility.

MC40 joins the Handheld X1 and the Honeywell 70e in what was until recently a category that the major enterprise mobility manufacturers had always populated with .NET product.

MC40 comes with  a 4.1″ 300 NIT capacitive screen running Android 2.3 and all the other bells and whistles we have already learnt to expect from a device in this category

Options include a  Magnetic Stripe Reader and an interesting assortment of charging accessories and cradles.

It is also available in various groovy colours !

Check out the MC40 Specification Sheet for complete details.

 

 

What is it For ?

Motorola Solutions have been talking about this unit for sometime so no surprise that they chose the NRF retail exhibition in New York to introduce it as:

“MC40 is the first multi-purpose mobile computer for retail that incorporates inventory management with collaboration and line busting mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) capabilities in a compelling form factor”

MC40 Appeal Beyond Retail

It is likely that this category of product will start to be seen a lot more in enterprise mobility projects outside the retail as major projects are already asking for Android based rugged handhelds. Users will easily adopt this form factor as it has become so familiar in the consumer area. The MC40 comes with a relatively high list price but do not expect huge discounts unless you have a huge order to place.

Other than Android why else will it appeal to projects outside retail:

  1. Product Longevity – likely to be a lot longer in production than consumer brands which helps make sense of managing the life cycle of a large deployment.
  2. Built for High Frequency use – the enterprise mobility manufacturers know a thing or two about building rugged products that will see many bumps drops and scrapes.
  3. Break Fix and Total Cost of Ownership – Having a rugged handheld in the field is in part based on the premise that in the event of a fault the facility exists to repair it rather than send it for scrap. Manufacturers like Motorola have a lot of their business invested in repair services so expect this to be a big TCO value added dimension for the MC40.
  4. Accessories – I know boring! but having docking cradles spare battery chargers etc can really make all the difference to the usability of any mobile computer.
  5. Like the X1 and the 70e the MC40 could be susceptible to theft so best to revise employee procedures and load up with MDM software.
  6. Bring Your Own Device – The MC40 will make an attractive 3 Year BYOD bundle when combined with finance, support airtime and a process specific app.
