Instant Access To Information In The Field

With the MC36, your workers get the modern design and familiar Android operating system they want in a rugged device built to handle the everyday drops, dust and spills out in the field. The large 4.3 in. colour WVGA display offers pinch-and-zoom interactivity and the best-in-class brightness that makes the screen easy to read — even outdoors. With the most power in its class, the MC36 can run your most demanding applications. With the most battery capacity in its class, your workers will have plenty of power, even for extended 12 hours shifts. 

You get the advanced bar code scanning technology that Zebra is famous for — the easy capture of any 1D and 2D bar code in virtually any condition, plus an option to add HF-RFID. As the only device to offer support for dual cellular networks, you no longer need to choose between networks — simply activate the two networks that will provide constant coverage for workers travelling large territories better served by different cellular providers. And scan buttons on both sides of the device make it easy for right and left-handed workers to capture bar codes.
