Innovative Features of the TC51/TC56 Touch Mobile Computer

Maximum display size with advanced technology
The 5 inch (12.7 cm) display offers plenty of real estate for graphics-intensive intuitive applications. This capacitive touch panel gives workers easy, familiar and flexible multi-touch operation that works even when wet, with a gloved finger or a stylus. With best-in-class outdoor readability, the screen is easy to read, even in bright sunlight.

Business tough—built for all-day every day enterprise use
While the TC51/TC56 looks like a smartphone, workers can drop it in water or onto concrete, use it in dusty areas and more—and still expect reliable operation. The unibody design provides extra impact protection. The Corning Gorilla Glass touch panel and imager window brings maximum scratch-proofing and shatter-proofing to two of the most vulnerable device features.

The fastest, most dependable wireless connections inside and outside the four walls
With 802.11ac, the Wi-Fi enabled TC51 supports the fastest Wi-Fi connections with the most robust roaming support. The Wi-Fi and 4G LTE cellular-enabled TC56 keeps workers connected no matter where they are—in the facility or out in the field.

Powerfully efficient architecture with PowerPrecision+ battery for best-in-class power and manageability
Workers depend on their mobile devices nearly every minute of the day. The TC51 and TC56 are designed with a 64 bit hexa core processor that manages performance for the task at hand better than higher speed quad core devices. The user-replaceable PowerPrecision+ battery delivers up to an impressive 14 hours of power, ensuring that workers have plenty of power for the longest shift. A wealth of easily accessible battery metrics make it easier than ever to identify, remove and replace aging batteries. Also, with Warm Swap mode, users can change the battery without losing connectivity—no reboot is required.
