AUSTIN, Texas -- March 4, 2013

Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), the manufacturer of the world’s most
powerful, longest-lasting and rugged tablet in the market, today announced a
significant purchase of its iX104C5 DMSR-M rugged tablet from the U.S.
military. The order of more than 200 rugged tablets will be delivered during
the next two months.

Xplore Technologies’ iX104C5 DMSR-M is certified for use on military
frontlines and fixed-wing aircraft, and was chosen for its select features,
which include the ability to operate without jamming or interrupting radio
signals, real-time video streaming, a high performance operating system, and
its ability to seamlessly interface with specialized equipment. This order, a
continuation of the multi-million dollar win the company announced in December
2012, marks Xplore’s second largest purchase from the military sector in
recent months.

“Our products are the only truly upgradeable and field replaceable rugged
tablet PCs that offer high reliability, a low failure rate and a fast
processing speed that enable military personnel to execute mission plans in
the most challenging conditions and, in some cases, save lives,” said Mark
Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore Technologies.

“This order coupled with the previous order from the U.S. military, is a
result of strategic product and market investments we have made in the defense
sector, ” said Philip S. Sassower, chairman and chief executive officer for
Xplore Technologies. “This purchase continues the solid relationship we have
established with our military customers and affirms our military strategy.”

The iX104C5 DMSR-M rugged tablet is designed for frontline personnel, and is
built to meet military specifications (MIL-STD-810G) in the most extreme
environments. The tablet can withstand a seven-foot drop while operating,
offers an award-winning sunlight readable display, is impenetrable to dust and
debris, and operates in explosion-prone areas without causing sparks.
