TC55 Touch Computer

To get the job done, your workers need rugged, reliable, remote access to real-time data. While personal smartphones, tablets and laptops may be attractive and easy to use, they do not have the durability or functionality necessary for everyday business use.

This pocket-sized, all-touch computer has it all. The TC55 Touch Computer capitalizes on the latest technological advancements, aesthetic appeal and usability of popular personal devices. But unlike its consumer-grade counterparts, it has integrated data capture capabilities and is built to withstand the wear and tear of industrial environments, so it’s less likely to fail in the field. Fewer failures mean less downtime, and most importantly, higher productivity and profitability.

Advanced capacitive touch screen that works virtually anywhere
The 4.3 in. high-resolution display isn’t just bigger, it’s significantly better. Based on cutting-edge HAST LCD technology, the screen is brighter both indoors and outdoors, all while consuming substantially less energy (just one reason why the TC55 has industry-leading battery life). At 700 NITs, it has outstanding indoor luminance, and the screen’s transflective feature actually leverages direct sunlight to improve its image clarity, making it ideal for outdoor viewing as well. Furthermore, the capacitive touch panel dynamically adjusts to the current environment, enabling it to work with or without gloves, wet or dry and with your finger or a stylus.

Leveraging Zebra's voice leadership
From police to firemen, people all over the world rely on Zebra’s clear sound technology for life-saving decisions. The TC55 leverages this expertise to produce unparalleled voice output based on dual front-facing speakers that yield 4X the volume of popular smartphones from Apple and Samsung. Coupled with dual microphones with precision, noise-cancelling technology, the TC55 delivers outstanding clarity at both ends of the call, even in noisy environments, for a no-compromise voice solution.

Fortified for the enterprise with Extensions (Mx)
New features that transform Android™ from a consumer operating system (OS) to a true enterprise-class OS.

Integrated scanner and imager for fast, accurate data capture
Increase productivity with the integrated 1-D scanner, an optional 1-D/2-D ring-style Bluetooth scanner, an 8 MP camera and Near Field Communications (NFC), so workers can quickly and easily capture virtually any type of data at the press of a button.

Expanded enterprise software for rapid deployment
A wide variety of applications ready for Android are available to help businesses in many vertical markets improve mobile workforce efficiency. 

Standard or Professional Configuration to meet your needs
Both built on Android Open Source (AOSP), the Standard Configuration comes with Google Mobile Services (GMS), a suite of integrated Google applications standard on most smart phones - ideal for workers that depend on apps such as Gmail or Google Maps. Our Professional Configuration ships without GMS, promoting greater privacy and security of personal information by preventing location tracking and data collection — providing a solution for businesses with strict security policies.
