Xplore Technologies gets orders for tablet PCs from airline

Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR) said it has received additional orders for its XC6 Windows tablet PCs from one of the world´s largest and most well-known airlines.

The newest order is in addition to an order announced in December 2014 and is an expansion of the previously announced multi-million dollar project. The airline is using the tablets to supply the airline´s ground crews and expedite the baggage handling process at airports across the United States.

“Our airline customer is witnessing success with its program to put rugged tablets in the hands of its ground crews to ensure customers´ baggage gets to the right destination,” said Philip S. Sassower, CEO and chairman of the board for Xplore Technologies. “With our ultra-rugged XC6 tablet PCs, we are confident that the airline will continue to make great strides in its enterprise rollout and we look forward to continuing to expand our relationship further.”

The Xplore XC6 is certified MIL-STD-810G, rated dust and waterproof (IP67), and can withstand repeated seven-foot drops. The XC6 features the most advanced sunlight readable display, which is easy to read in direct sunlight. It also features glove-touch technology that enables use of the device with gloves on as well as when the screen is wet or dirty.

Established in 1996, Xplore Technologies is the number two provider of rugged tablet PCs worldwide. With its recent acquisition of the Motion Computing product portfolio, the company now delivers the broadest range of rugged Windows and Android tablets available on the market.
