Xplore Secures Additional Million-Dollar Contract with Major Telecommunications Provider for Two Rugged Tablet Platforms

AUSTIN, TX - May 10, 2016 - Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), manufacturer of the world’s broadest range of high-quality rugged tablet computers, announced today it has secured a $1 million order for its Xplore Bobcat and XSLATE B10 fully rugged tablet computers from a major telecommunications provider. The telecommunications provider previously deployed the Bobcat and XSLATE B10 tablets in 2014 and 2015, and due to the continued growth of the company and success with Xplore, contracted for additional tablets to address new employee hires in all regions.

Field service technicians and managers in the construction and engineering divisions will use the Xplore Bobcat and Xplore B10 rugged tablets for a myriad of tasks. These include time reporting, ordering facility reports, reviewing wire center data and facility records, authorizing cable splice counts, and geospatially locating facilities in a wire center. In addition to the rugged tablets, Xplore will also provide the relevant accessories for both tablet models to enable enhanced mobility and productivity when in the vehicle and on foot.

“Xplore’s complete line of rugged tablet solutions are optimized for the unique challenges and specific communications requirements of the global telecommunications industry,” said Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore. “Certified for 4G LTE usage around the world, both the Bobcat and XSLATE B10 deliver the mobility and reliability field technicians need during new site construction, maintenance of existing facilities, testing/optimization of the network, and other critical telecommunications business operations.”

The Xplore Bobcat and XSLATE B10 are lightweight yet fully rugged 10.1” tablets that provide ultra mobility, superior connectivity, and unfailing protection. Both weigh only 2.4 lbs. and are IP65 and MIL-STD-810G rated to protect critical data under the most demanding conditions. Available with a range of Intel® processors, the Bobcat and XSLATE B10 are each engineered to deliver high-performance mobility via full version Microsoft® Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 7 operating systems. They offer up to 20 hours of hot-swappable battery life, maximizing time in the field and boosting productivity. Both tablets are equipped with critical I/O connectivity, with the B10 featuring up to eight built-in I/O ports, including an optional HDMI input, an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connection. The B10 also seals the most commonly used I/O ports against dust and water ingress, even when open.
