AUSTIN, Texas -- December 11, 2013

Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), the manufacturer of the world’s most
powerful, longest-lasting and rugged tablets on the market, has received its
first major purchase order for its RangerX rugged Android tablet. The order of
approximately $4 million from a major U.S. telecommunications provider
includes tablets and accessories and is expected to ship this month.

The RangerX uniquely offers functionality that allows the telecommunications
provider to consolidate the equipment used by its field service engineers into
a single device, eliminating the need for troublesome and costly external
dongles currently used to test HD video signals and Internet connectivity
during home and business installations. The RangerX is the only tablet that
delivers this capability and, as such, was chosen by the provider to drive
significant cost savings and efficiencies.

“This multi-million dollar order is a great testament to how the RangerX
caters to the telecommunications industry unlike any other rugged device on
the market,” Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore
Technologies, said.

The rugged Android tablets will be used to facilitate the prompt delivery of
work orders and work order completions and to simplify the installation
process, reducing cost and improving efficiency. This solution is also
expected to reduce the need for repeated service calls to the same location, a
major pain point for the telco industry. Additionally, when integrated with
GPS systems in service vehicles, the RangerX can provide faster response times
for emergency outages by optimizing technician availability and proximity to
the outage.

“The RangerX is exceptional both in its ability to provide the technology
needed for our customer to meet its business objectives and to withstand the
harsh and unpredictable conditions of working in the field,” Philip S.
Sassower, chairman and chief executive officer for Xplore Technologies, said.
“The rugged features, superb viewable screen display and unique telco
functionality made the company’s decision to choose the RangerX over
competitors very easy.”

Xplore Technologies’ RangerX device is a lighter weight rugged tablet that
provides the largest storage capacity on the market and is certified rugged,
holding both IP65 and MIL-STD 810G ratings. The Android tablet has a battery
life of up to 10 hours to maximize time in the field and boost productivity,
allowing 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.
