With the VC80x, you can easily migrate your material handling vehicles to the next generation platform for warehousemobility. Based on Android, the VC80x delivers a well-proven mobility platform with guaranteed security support you can count on. You can migrate from Windows to Android without changing the experience you have in place today — no re-training, re-configuration, or development is required. Designed for the most extreme environments, the VC80x can go everywhere your vehicle operators need to go — inside the warehouse, out in the yard, on the loading dock and even in the freezer. And only Zebra fortifies Android with powerful Mobility DNA features to accelerate every aspect of the warehouse, from goods in to ship out. The VC80x — ultra-rugged, Android-powered for a smarter warehouse.
