S&P Capital IQ announced today that it has commenced Standard & Poor’s Factual Stock Report coverage on Xplore Technologies Corp.

Xplore Technologies Corp. (OTCQB: XLRT) is engaged in the business of developing, integrating and marketing rugged mobile wireless PC computing systems. The company's products enable the extension of traditional computing systems to a range of field and on-site personnel, regardless of location or environment. Compatible with a range of wireless communication options, Xplore's computing products enable end-users to receive, collect, analyze, manipulate and transmit information in a variety of environments not suited to traditional computing devices. The company's end-users are in the following markets: utilities, telecommunications, warehousing/logistics, public safety, field service, transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing, route delivery, military and homeland security.

The company's family of tablet personal computer (PC) systems can be fitted with a range of performance-matched accessories, including multiple docking station solutions, wireless connectivity alternatives, global positioning system modules, biometric, and smartcard modules, as well as traditional peripherals, such as keyboards, mice, and cases. Xplore supports up to 160GB Solid State Drive (SSD). In addition, Xplore tablets have the only tool-less access to the (SSD) in the market making it quick and easy to swap drives for storage, or OS within minutes. Using the company's industrial strength mounts, the tablets can be mounted on motorcycles, watercraft, vehicles, helicopters, forklifts, tanks, carts, or walls. The tablets are designed to handle water, dust, debris, salt, vibration and extreme temperatures. In contrast to laptops that have display hinges that can crack when dropped, and that are prone to overheating and can't be viewed well in direct sunlight, the company says their tablets can be dropped, hosed off if necessary with their IP 67 rating, and that the screens are viewable in direct sunlight.

In January 2012, Xplore launched a new line of docking systems offering the best durability and lightweight installation options. Designed specifically to withstand the shocks and vibrations associated with mounting a tablet on vehicles or forklifts, the docking system is equipped with a tamper-proof key lock for securing the tablet while docked.

The company was founded in 1997 and is based in Austin, Texas.

Standard & Poor’s Factual Stock Report coverage on Xplore Technologies Corp will also be accessible on an ongoing basis to the investment community by scores of buy-side institutions and sell-side firms that utilize S&P Capital IQ research and information platforms daily. Millions of self-directed investors also have access to the report via their e-brokerage accounts. Please visit www.xploretech.com for additional information.
