By Tom Spring


"With its XSlate B10, rugged tablet maker Xplore Technologies brings to market an affordable, versatile 10.1-inch-display Windows tablet meant to withstand the harshest of environments, including exposure to extreme temperatures, dust, salt water, vibrations -- and those of us who are prone to drop things. Xplore, a rising star among rugged tablet makers, introduced the XSlate B10 just recently. CRN had a chance to take the tablet for a spin -- and drop it a few times as well."

Xplore XSLATE B10 Rugged Tablet Review

"With its powerful Intel Core i5 processor; bright, accurate screen; and ruggedized durability, the Xplore Xslate B10 ($2,799 as reviewed) is a great option to bring into the field. The Xslate's main drawback is that its battery life is shorter than that of the Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet ($2,964 as reviewed). Still, the Xslate beat the Latitude 12 in all other performance tests, which makes it worthy of your consideration"

XSLATE B10 Rugged Tablet Review: Ample Ports, Tough Against Abuse

Xplore, a rising start among rugged tablet makers, introduced the B10 this week. CRN had a chance to take the tablet for a spin – and drop it a few times as well.

“Overall, the XSLATE B10 is a stellar addition to Xplore tablet lineup, reflecting a best-of-tech approach when it comes to integrating Xplore and recently acquired tablet maker Motion Computing.”

“The XSlate impresses with its no-compromise specs and expandability via eight standard ports. Xplore manages to deliver a truckload more features than archrival Panasonic does with its similarly priced ToughPad G1 ruggedized tablet.”

Xplore XSLATE B10 Review

"Because of its relatively light weight and small size, the Xplore Xslate B10 comes across as a better option for use in the field than a rugged laptop. At the same time, it’s very well supplied with the ports that are necessary when working in a remote location."

"It’s these ports that separate this model from a regular consumer oriented tablet in a rugged case; the Xslate B10 has options built into it that users of a Surface Pro 3 can’t hope to match, like dual USB ports and Ethernet."

"Business oriented computers always sell for more than consumer oriented ones do, especially when they are ruggedized. That’s why it’s no surprise that the base MSRP for the Xslate B10 is $2799. That will change with upgraded features."

"For comparison, a Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet is $3198.67. This model has a larger screen, which helps explain the higher price, but it still helps demonstrate that Xplore’s price is in the right ballpark."

Xplore Technologies XSLATE B10 Benchmarks and Comparisons

“One of the primary reasons why Xplore chose to add the XSLATE B10 as a high-end version of the Bobcat is the state of the art 5th generation “Broadwell” processor. The results are impressive. The XSLATE B10 is over twice as fast as the already quick Bobcat. What this means is that the XLATE B10 is a high performance tablet for virtually any job, even complex, demanding ones.”  “With the light and handy Windows-based XSLATE B10, Xplore not only complements its line of ultra-rugged tablets, but provides an enhanced and significantly more powerful tablet to further broaden and expand Xplore’s reach in the rugged market.”

Xplore XBOOK D10 Review

Within a few minutes of testing the XBOOK D10, it was apparent that the computer has functions that rival any laptop or desktop computer. Its touch mouse pad, for example, is a nice addition to the keyboard by making it easy to transition between the office and the field. It has a flexible footprint that allows for easy set up at home, on a desk, or mounted to a vehicle dash or secured to a field worker with the hand-strap on the backside.

Xplore XSLATE D10 Review

With the XSlate D10, Xplore Technologies has now also brought its Android-based thin-and-light (but still very rugged) 10.1-inch tablet technologically up-to-date. This means greater processing and communications performance for a platform that can also draw on a remarkably broad and complete lineup of supporting and complementary peripherals.
