AUSTIN, Texas -- July 10, 2013

Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), the manufacturer of the world’s most
powerful, longest-lasting and rugged tablets on the market, today announced
that it has introduced the RangerX—the company’s first rugged Android tablet,
which blends sleek versatility with Xplore’s proven powerful rugged
performance. The new lightweight tablet provides the largest storage capacity
on the market, has a brilliant outdoor viewable display and is certified as
being fully rugged, holding both IP65 and MIL-STD 810G ratings.

“With more than 15 years of testing, research and development, Xplore has
demonstrated the ability to bring proven technology to the rugged space,” Mark
Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore Technologies, said.
“We’re adding to that legacy with the RangerX, the most durable Android tablet
available.”

The lightweight 10.1 inch tablet is ideal for field service applications in
industries such as utilities, energy, warehousing, logistics, transportation,
military and public safety. In addition, the RangerX is the only rugged
Android tablet to provide an optional integrated module with Gigabit Ethernet
and HDMI-In connections, making it ideal for satellite, cable, broadband and
telecommunication providers.

“Our customers in the carrier space want to be able to reduce the number of
tools their field service workers need to get the job done,” added Holleran.
“With the capability provided by the optional HDMI-In and Gigabit Ethernet,
not only do they have the perfect tool for work-order management, but they can
also validate and diagnose installation or service issues on-site with one
device.”

The RangerX is 2.2 pounds, and looks and feels more like a contemporary tablet
than a traditional rugged device. The tablet has a battery life up to 10 hours
to maximize time in the field and boost productivity, which allows for a full
working shift on one charge. In addition, the tablet’s vibrant outdoor
viewable, multi-touch display allows for seamless transition from indoors to
outdoors.

“The RangerX is not only fully rugged, but also offers a wide range of
multifaceted capabilities to adapt to the needs of enterprise, field service
and data collection workers facing various elements,” Philip S. Sassower,
chief executive officer and chairman of the board for Xplore Technologies,
said. “The new RangerX highlights our commitment to expand our product
offerings in order to meet specialized customer needs.”
