In its largest-ever order from the military, Xplore Technologies of Austin, TX, has received a “multi-million-dollar” purchase order for more than 900 rugged tablet PCs. Delivery of the Xplore iX104C5M rugged Windows tablets is expected to occur over the next several months to an unspecified military customer.
“We expect this order to be the first in a series of purchase orders for the U.S. military involving the delivery of several thousand devices, improving our footprint in the military space,” stated Mark Holleran, Xplore’s president and chief operating officer, in a press release. “We believe Xplore’s ultra rugged tablet solution is gaining traction in military applications in the U.S. and other countries…(and) further believe the iX104C5M is the best tablet for use in military deployments—whether supporting special operations, managing workflows on the flight line or delivering real-time data to mobile field units.”
