TC70 Series Rugged Touch Computer

Your Front Line to a Smarter Enterprise

Your employees need enterprise class handheld computers to communicate and access information seamlessly in order to work more efficiently and better serve your customers — yet they want a device that is every bit as refined and easy-to-use as their own consumer devices.

With flexible OS support, you can choose between two of the most advanced and intuitive mobile operating systems — Android™ and Windows 10 IoT Mobile Enterprise — both fortified for use in the enterprise. The rugged design holds up even in the most demanding environments and the TC70 Series can double as a voice communications device. You can automate the capture of just about any type of business intelligence with the embedded scanner and camera. And the full complement of accessories and cutting edge technology will serve your business for years to come, for an unsurpassed return on investment. Better serve your customers in retail, manufacturing, and operations with the TC70 Series. Real competitive advantage — delivered.
TC70x Series Touch Computers

Enterprise-Class Android with Multiple Configurations to Meet Your Needs

With the TC70 Series, you can leverage the power of Android, while choosing the configuration that best fits your technology and business needs. Every Android TC70 Series ships with Mobility Extensions (Mx), a series of features that make Android a more robust enterprise-class operating system. Mx minimizes IT support time and maximizes worker productivity and device uptime by providing better control of your mobile devices, application access and Wi-Fi performance and security. Standard Configuration TC70 and TC70x Android devices come with Google Mobile Services (GMS) which provides integrated Google applications such as Gmail and Google Maps. Professional Configuration TC70 and TC70x Android devices ship without GMS, removing GMS applications and services. Both configurations are based on Android Open Source (AOSP) and ship with respective Android Enterprise functionality.

World-Class Data Capture

Give your employees the tools they need to work faster and smarter. The integrated enterprise-class imager offers Zebra’s proprietary PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology, a megapixel sensor and advanced optics, which work together to deliver data capture performance in a class of its own. Workers can capture 1D and 2D barcodes in virtually any condition, at lightning speed. The rear-facing camera enables the easy capture of high-resolution photos, signatures, videos and more, allowing you to capture more types of business intelligence to streamline more business processes. The front camera allows workers to place a video call to get the help they need — and provide customers with that personal touch. Near Field Communications offers simple Tap and Pair device pairing with compatible printers, and automates identity verification at facility entry points.

Maximum Data Entry Flexibility with an Industry Leading Dual Mode Touch Panel

Let your users choose their preferred data input pair: finger and gloved finger or finger and stylus — ideal for crisp signature capture. The intelligent display automatically adjusts as needed, unlike competitive devices that require setting adjustments every time the user switches data input method. And the large 4.7 in. display takes the capacitive touch experience to the next level — it works even if it’s wet.

Comprehensive Audio Functionality for a New Level of Voice Flexibility

With up to four times the loudness of popular smartphones and noise cancelling technology, the TC70 Series provides crystal clear audio on both ends of every call. Android supports Workforce Connect Push-to-Talk Express to give workers walkie-talkie style voice communications right out of the box. The result? A highly collaborative workforce that can respond instantly to customer needs.

Mobility DNA

Every strand of your Android mobility platform is simpler with Zebra’s Mobility DNA. That’s because, from the start, you have the industry’s most comprehensive suite of mobility must-haves to accelerate your solution. More off-the-shelf end-user apps, more robust administration utilities and easier app development. Purpose built for the enterprise, Mobility DNA makes ease, confidence and value intrinsic to your investment and our full line of Android mobile computers.

Rugged and Ready for All-Day Every Day Enterprise Use

The TC70 Series is ready for the demands of everyday life in the business world, tested and proven to operate reliably after multiple 6 ft./1.8 m drops to concrete and 2,000 consecutive 3.2 ft./1 m tumbles in our punishing tumble test. With IP65 and IP67 sealing, you get a device that is dust-tight and can survive complete immersion in water, making it ideal for use in the retail backroom, warehouse floor, in outdoor shopping areas or outside on a receiving dock. The Corning Gorilla Glass touch panel and scanner exit window bring a new level of durability to two of the most vulnerable components.
