AUSTIN, Texas -- August 19, 2013

Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), manufacturer of the world’s most
powerful, longest-lasting and ultra-rugged tablets on the market, has been
ranked as a top three manufacturer for tablets by market intelligence firm ABI
Research. In its 2013 Tablet Competitive Assessment, Xplore Technologies
placed third overall, following Samsung Electronics Co. and Apple Inc.,
respectively.

From a roster of 19 leading tablet vendors, Xplore Technologies is ranked
highly for its good portfolio balance between implementation and innovation.
Xplore Technologies recently broadened its product offerings with the launch
of the RangerX, its first rugged Android tablet, helping to diversify the
company’s portfolio and placing it ahead of the majority of vendors in the
report.

“We’ve been designing, testing and manufacturing rugged tablets for more than
15 years, proving our expertise and leadership in the market,” said CEO and
Chairman for Xplore Technologies Philip S. Sassower. “Ranking third as a top
tablet vendor behind industry giants Samsung and Apple is a great testament to
the company’s exceptional products and high standard of rugged, mobile
technology development for our customers.”

Xplore Technologies’ iX104C5 ultra-rugged tablet product line can withstand a
seven-foot operating drop to concrete, complete exposure to four inches of
rain an hour blowing at 40 mph for 30 minutes per side, and blowing dust and
sand at 30 mph for 30 minutes. The ultra-rugged line is also completely
upgradeable and field replaceable, which minimizes downtime and improves
efficiency in the field.

Xplore recently expanded its market reach with the RangerX, a rugged
lightweight 10.2 inch tablet that is ideal for field service applications. The
rugged Android tablet comes in at 2.2 pounds and has a battery life up to 10
hours, helping to boost productivity on the field.
