18 Mar Hardware: Zebra Rugged Smartphones
Like a consumer smartphone – but much more durable and hard-working – Zebra rugged smartphones are perfect for warehouse and delivery operations.
Complete with touchscreens, a camera and a barcode scanner, they make it easy to quickly scan inventory or delivery packages. They also have an impressive, all-day battery life.
There’s a range of Zebra rugged smartphones and touch computers – from a standard model ideal for small businesses, through to enterprise-grade models.
The Zebra TC25 is perfect for small businesses. Its rugged design makes it the durable choice for your delivery drivers. Its low total cost of ownership makes it the entry-level model among the Zebra rugged smartphones. It is purpose-built for light duty use and is lightweight and easy to hold and carry.
