New enterprise mobile computer is first to offer Android™ and Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating system

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) is offering the third generation of the industry’s most successful mid-range mobile computer to retailers, manufacturers and distributors to help improve customer satisfaction through more efficient and accurate inventory management. The new, lightweight MC3200 mobile computer is ideal for inventory-related tasks on the store sales floor, in the warehouse aisle and on the loading dock where mobile workers need to rapidly and accurately pick orders to ensure customers receive the right items on time.

The cost-effective MC3200 is the industry’s first enterprise-class mobile device available with support for both the AndroidTM and Windows Embedded Compact (CE) 7 operating system (OS) – enabling businesses to standardize on one OS for all of their enterprise applications. With Premium models of the MC3200, companies can swap between Android and Windows CE7, enabling them to purchase the OS that best meets the needs of their businesses and workers today and in the future.

  • With a fast dual core 1GHz processor, high-speed 802.11n WLAN radio, expanded memory options and Motorola’s latest 1D and 2D scan engines, the MC3200 helps improve application performance, decrease cycle times and increase productivity.
