MC2100 series that will help them improve their business efficiency. With the
MC2100 series, even the more price-sensitive small and medium enterprises will
be able to effectively make the necessary investments to mobilize their workers
and explore new ways to improve on their competitive advantage and
profitability in their increasingly competitive industry verticals,” said Andy

With the MC2100 series, Motorola redefines the value tier
for rugged mobile computers with five configurations of
the MC2100 that include three different scan engines, options for
batch and WLAN connectivity, and vertical-specific accessories.

The lightweight and ergonomic MC2100 also comes with a
powerful processor, numerical key pad and a touchscreen for operational ease.
These specifications make it ideal for scan-intensive tasks such as inventory
management, stock replenishment, price marking and shelf labelng which are
common operational activities in retail, manufacturing and supply chain

The MC2100 is the first value-tier rugged handheld in the
mobile computing industry to support HTML5 via Motorola’s RhoElements application
enablement framework.

as other Motorola mobile computing products to simplify application support and
integration into an enterprise environment.

RhoElements is a state-of-the-art web-based application
framework. It is designed to allow businesses to quickly and cost-effectively
