Industry's most rugged Wi-Fi enterprise mobile computer offers superior wireless and voice capabilities for the most demanding business and healthcare applications

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - The Motorola Solutions business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced the MC55A0 series - the industry's most rugged Wi-Fi enterprise mobile computer for managers, task workers and clinicians. The new MC55A0 series, part of Motorola's mobile knowledge worker portfolio, redefines workforce productivity and efficiency and provides support for the most demanding in-premise business applications. Available in two models, the MC55A0 is designed for customer-facing business applications, while the MC55A0-HC is available in white and blue and is disinfectant-ready for healthcare environments.

- Designed to improve customer and patient satisfaction, the rugged MC55A0
series empowers mobile workers in retail, hospitality, manufacturing,
healthcare and government agencies with a unique combination of form and
function to access and capture information quickly and accurately.
Comprehensive capabilities allow workers to scan bar codes, access
business applications, capture images, view videos, access internet and
email, and receive private push-to-talk voice calls.

- Offering a superior user experience and cost-effective voice
communications, the MC55A0 series supports voice and data over the
wireless LAN (WLAN). In addition, Motorola's Total Enterprise Access and
Mobility (TEAM) Express solution provides Push-To-Talk capability
between the MC55A0 and other Motorola devices, including mobile

- Built to last, the MC55A0 series can withstand the rigors of in-building
use and in areas outside a facility. The MC55A0 delivers outstanding
performance, even after exposure to heat, cold, dust, water -- and all
models can be sanitized to help prevent the spread of germs to patients
and caregivers in a hospital as well as shift workers in other
industries where devices are shared.

- In addition to standard support for all the latest wireless
authentication and encryption protocols and Motorola's tested and
certified Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), the MC55A0 series adds native
