New Motorola MC45 Computer Provides Mobility for Knowledge-Based Field Workers

Field workers for companies or governmental organizations can now take a handheld computer with them wherever they go. The Motorola MC45 mobile computer is designed for functions like CRM, inventory management, direct store delivery, sales order entry, proof of delivery and route accounting.

The Motorola MC45 delivers both LAN (802.11 a/b/g) and WAN (3.5G HSDPA voice/data) to knowledge-based field workers on the go. In addition to serving governmental organizations, the MC45 can also assist sales professionals and professionals in the transportation and logistics industries.

“As a value-conscious device, the MC45 enables organizations to equip their mobile workforces with an affordable solution that empowers enterprise knowledge workers with a communication and productivity tool,” explained Girish Rishi, senior vice president of enterprise solutions at Motorola.

“Built around Motorola’s core enterprise mobile computing fundamentals for targeted markets, the MC45 does not compromise on quality, reliability or core feature set.”

In addition to Wi-Fi connectivity, the MC45 features voice communication with a handset that features noise reduction, Bluetooth and speaker phone. The computer is GPS-enabled and utilizes the Microsoft Windows Handheld 6.5.3 Professional Edition.

Along with 256 MB RAM and 1 GB of Flash memory, the MC45 sports a 600 MHz ARM 11 processor. The rechargeable Lithium Ion 3.7 volt 3080 mAh battery rests inside a polycarbonate frame with a 26-key numeric keypad.

The phone measures 5.6” long by 2.6” wide. The MC45 is 1” thick and weighs approximately 8.75 ounces. The screen is outdoor viewable thanks to backlighting, and users can expand memory by using the 32GB micro SD slot.

For field workers, the MC45 delivers laser scanning with Motorola’s patented Adaptive Scanning technology. End users can collect signatures on the touchscreen and capture 3.2 megapixel photographs with the color camera.

MC45 features Motorola’s RhoMobile Suite, which synchronizes data to operate in either a connected or a disconnected environment. Enterprise applications can be deployed on the Windows handheld or on Android-based Motorola devices while achieving a consistent user experience.
