Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), manufacturer of the world’s most

“Distractions from mobile devices while driving is not limited to
automobiles,” said Mark Holleran, President and Chief Operating Officer for
Xplore Technologies.“Fork lifts, cranes, garbage trucks, even bulldozers are
using cab-mounted tablets as productivity tools, making motion-safety
technology a critical component of an accident-free workplace.”

By integrating blank-it’sdistracted driving solution with Xplore’s
ultra-rugged tablets, drivers are limited to the use of pre-selected programs
while in motion, such as navigation aids, reversing camera displays or
dispatch systems. And while other safety-motion technologies offer solutions
that use GPS technology for motion detection outdoors, the Xplore Technologies
and blank-it solution relies on a patented motion sensing technology that
eliminates the dependency on GPS navigation, making it ideal for indoor use
such as in warehouses or factories.

“Xplore’s rugged tablets are ideal devices for the warehousing and logistical
environments where our customers operate,” said Philip Little, President at
blank-it. “Because of the tablets’ ability to operate and withstand
all-terrain environments, forklift operators are able to operate more safely,
no matter where they are.”

blank-it’s motion detecting software automatically activates when an operator
puts a vehicle in motion by utilizing a proprietary USB mounted
accelerometer.To prevent tampering, Xplore developed a secure cover to lock
the accelerometer to the vehicle mounted tablet. The integrated solution is
available with Xplore’s ultra-rugged iX104C5 product series.

Xplore’s ultra-rugged tablets are employed by the world’s largest fleets
indoors and out.blank-it’s technologyprovides an easy and safe option to
manage vehicle displays and address driver distraction with its screen
blanking software. The Xplore and blank-it solution can be used in various
environments that benefit from rugged technology, including warehousing and
