LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – June 1, 2021 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), an innovator at the front line of business with solutions and partners that deliver a performance edge, today announced that CRN, a brand of the Channel Company, has named the EC50/EC55 enterprise mobile computers to its 2021 Mobile 100 list. The EC50/EC55 were recognized among the 20 Coolest Phones, Accessories and Mobile Computers of 2021. The CRN Mobile 100 list has become an indispensable resource for solution providers looking to meet their mobility needs with only the best technology and services from IT suppliers.

Zebra Technologies joins top technology vendors that are featured on this annual list of the companies that bring innovative and efficient products to the mobile market. The companies that secured a spot on the 2021 Mobile 100 were chosen by a panel of CRN editors that drew nominations from four different categories of consideration: Laptops and Tablets; Phones, Accessories and Mobile Computers; Mobile Security and Management Tools: Mobile App Development Platforms and Collaboration Apps.

Zebra’s EC5x series, which was released earlier this year, is a new category of individually assigned enterprise mobile computers designed to keep workers connected and informed. The EC5x series improves individual productivity, collaboration and the customer experience across multiple industries, including retail, hospitality, field services and ancillary healthcare. It’s also ideal for large, global companies as well as small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and is Zebra’s thinnest and lightest mobile computer.

“The IT vendors being recognized on CRN’s 2021 Mobile 100 list have demonstrated an unwavering commitment toward supporting solution providers with the tools and services they need to succeed in today’s mobility-facing business landscape,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “On behalf of The Channel Company, I want to extend my heartfelt congratulations to these forward-thinking companies for their dedication to improving the customer experience.”
