AUSTIN, Texas -- March 27, 2013

Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), the manufacturer of the world’s most
powerful, longest-lasting and rugged tablet in the market, has announced the
newest addition to its rugged tablet portfolio, the iX104C5-M2. The new rugged

specifically meet the specialized security needs of military and government

The new iX104C5-M2 introduces additional hardware security with a fully
integrated common access card (CAC) reader, which provides a secure and more
trusted platform experience for military personnel. An ISO 7816 smart card
issued by the U.S. government must be inserted into the device to access
information appropriate to the user’s security clearance on the tablet. The
CAC reader ensures that critical data is only accessible by the appropriate,
qualified user. Since the CAC card is completely contained within the
iX104C5-M2 CAC reader, it poses no threat of possible damage resulting from
foreign objects.

“With the addition of an integrated CAC reader, military personnel will know
that mission-critical information is contained securely on their mobile
device,” said Dan Morris, director of military programs for Xplore
Technologies. “And like all of our other products, the new iX104C5-M2 is a
wholly field upgradable rugged tablet that makes military and government
organizations nimble and effective, no matter what conditions they might find
themselves in.”

The iX104C5-M2 rugged tablet is outfitted with an Intel® Core™ i7 processor,
is Windows 8 compatible, and offers the most advanced performance platform in
its class. The speed and efficiency of Xplore’s military tablets allows
federal and Department of Defense users to deploy high-end enterprise level
applications with confidence and reliability.

“We work closely with our military and government customers to provide
products that meet their very specialized needs,” said Mark Holleran,
president and chief operating officer for Xplore Technologies. “This next
generation of our military-grade tablets provides added safety and security
when our clients need it the most.”

Xplore Technologies’ iX104C5-M2 rugged tablet is designed for frontline
personnel as well as fixed forward base operations, and is built to meet
military specifications (MIL-STD-810G) guaranteeing performance 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 safely in Class 1, Division 2 explosive
zones. The new integrated CAC reader ensures that all data and material on the
mobile device is safe and secure, increasing operational integrity.
