The Symbol brand, last seen eight years ago when Motorola acquired Symbol Technologies, and now part of the Zebra fold, makes a return on the fascia of what the makers are calling the Symbol TC70 touch computer – a rugged handheld running the latest Android operating system.

The processor behind it is a fast but unnamed 1.7GHz unit, which is linked to 1GB of RAM and 8 GB of flash memory. The OS is Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), which comes with Android Extensions (Mx), said to transform the device into a secure, enterprise-capable machine. This is said to be the first device in its class running KitKat.

It’s a purely a touch-based device with no physical keyboard. It has a 4.7 in high-definition (1280 x 720 pixel) Corning Gorilla Glass 2 multi-touch capacitive screen, which is outdoor-viewable. 

It supports local-area Wi-Fi networking to a/b/g/n/d/h/I standard, has Bluetooth v4.0, and also supports NFC scanning. It can be used as a walkie-talkie radio, and comes with Workforce Connect Push-to-Talk Express Client capability. Volume is said to be able to be turned up particularly loudly (to 108bD SPL).

Other features include 1D and 2D imager, 8MP rear-facing autofocus camera and 1.3MP forward camera; and three-axis accelerometer.

The dust and water ingress resistance is to IP67, the drop spec is 1.8 metres to concrete, and the tumble specification is 2,000 from 1 metre.
