TC8000 Operating System BSP 10071 Release Notes

Introduction

What makes the TC8000 so special? Everything. It’s the ground-breaking all new warehouse mobile computer designed to deliver revolutionary productivity increases in the warehouse. In fact, on average, it saves 14% per worker versus the traditional form factors. And it’s the only device on the market that simplifies it all — how your workers physically use the device and interact with your warehouse application. The TC8000 minimizes motion with an innovative scan angle that eliminates the thousands of times your workers need to tilt their device to see the screen. We integrated flexible handheld and hands-free scanning for an extra productivity boost — another industry handheld first. It’s an amazing 33 percent lighter than the traditional device to minimize fatigue. And then we did something completely unprecedented by a device manufacturer — we integrated a tool that allows you to automatically transform your legacy Terminal Emulation (TE) “green screens” into elegant, graphics-based All-touch TE screens that are not only highly intuitive, but also dramatically reduce the number of interactions required to complete a task — no coding and no modifications to your host application are required. The result? Less time to complete the job and increased productivity. The TC8000 — the next big thing in warehouse mobility, only from Zebra.
