TC78 Mobile Computer


The Wi-Fi 6E/5G Mobile Computer, Re-Imagined for the New Age of Mobility

Designed for workers who spend their days outdoors, the TC78 offers everything you need to support the new generation of mobile solutions—5G fast connections for superior app performance, including streaming video and video calls; the bright 6-inch Full HD display is easy to see—even in direct sunlight. Built to handle 10 ft./3.05 m drops to concrete, it’s ready for life in the field. And it’s lighter, exceptionally balanced, and nearly 20% thinner, easy for any size hand to grip and use.
