Symbol Technologies Introduces the MC1000 Mobile Computer for SMBs

Symbol Technologies has not forgotten the SMB segment and as such has brought to market the Symbol MC1000 Rugged Mobile Computer. The Windows-CE based entry level mobile device is geared towards the retail and manufacturing segments – those who do a lot of bar code scanning and data entry, including inventory management, stock checking, and delivery confirmation.

Apart from Windows CE Version 4.2, the mobile device has an Intel XScale processor, 32MB of RAM, 32MB of ROM, a 240×240 2.2-inch monochrome screen, a laser-scan engine, and support for USB 1.1 devices. And the MC1000 is tough too! According to Symbol, it can take a four-foot drop to a concrete floor without getting damaged.

The MC1000, which retails at $695, also features an SD socket enabling its users to either add more storage or add in wireless support (which seems to be a feature being required more and more in the retail and manufacturing business).

This lightweight mobile computer also comes with Symbol’s Mobility Services Platform (MSP), which is responsible for gathering and monitoring information and delivering terminal information to a centralized console.

“As a global market leader in rugged mobile computing, Symbol is further expanding its product line to offer a handheld computer that provides emerging markets and small to medium-sized businesses with an enterprise tool to meet business needs,” said Chester “Chet” Pribonic, vice president and general manager of mobile computing, Symbol Technologies.
