What Makes Zebra’s OS Stand Out Over Consumer Smartphones?

Published on

Android is the most popular mobile operating system (OS), with 70.1% of people using Android(compared to 21% on iOS) worldwide and in the UK, with 55% of people using Android in (compared to 42.3% on iOS).

Despite its’ popularity and great capabilities as an OS, however, Android alone isn’t perfectly suited to business use. In fact, no consumer OS really has the enterprise features needed by businesses out-of-the-box.

Zebra‘s Mobility DNA transforms Android into an enterprise-ready OS, that allows businesses to become more productive, simplify management processes make integration easier.

Zebra’s hardware is perfectly suited to the transport and logistics sector (read about why you need rugged devices in the transport and logistics industry and why Zebra’s TC56 might just be the best phone for logistics professionals). We’ve also looked at why the Android OS on Zebra’s rugged devices is a great combination for commercial drivers.

Now we’re taking a closer look at that marriage of Android with Zebra. Instead of seeing how Zebra’s hardware can enhance Android’s OS to offer a business-ready device, we’ll show you how Zebra’s software (specifically Mobility DNA) transforms Android into an enterprise OS.
