Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:XPLR) , manufacturer of the most powerful, longest-lasting ultra-rugged and fully-rugged tablets, announced today that it received a significant order for its Bobcat fully-rugged Windows tablet PC from an existing retail customer. The tablets will be deployed over the next three years at stores in a five-state area in the Midwest.

“The Xplore Bobcat fully-rugged tablet is durable enough to withstand the vibrations of operating on a fork-lift truck as well as the extreme temperature variations experienced when driving from receiving docks into large refrigeration units,” said Philip S. Sassower, CEO and chairman of the board for Xplore Technologies. “This is the beginning of a new project with an existing customer, and we anticipate receiving further orders as the project ramps up.”

The retailer operates supercenters and grocery stores, and uses Xplore Technologies ultra and fully-rugged tablets in their warehouses and distribution centers. The fully-rugged Bobcat was selected for its durability as well as the array of mounting options provided by Xplore for forklift trucks and other powered warehouse vehicles. In addition to the tablets, the retailer’s order includes the tablet’s docking solution, extended warranties and installation services.

“The expansion Xplore Technologies made this year, moving from one ultra-rugged tablet product line into two additional fully-rugged product lines provides additional market opportunity,” said Mark Holleran, president and COO. “This retailer has been using Xplore’s ultra-rugged technology for years, and adding the fully-rugged Bobcat to their warehousing solution validates our multiple product line strategy.”

The Bobcat features a slim, lightweight design and runs both Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 operating systems. Certified MIL-STD-810G and rated dust and water resistant, the Bobcat can withstand a five-foot drop and operate in extreme cold and heat.
