"We are extremely pleased to announce receipt of the largest single military order in our history," said Philip S. Sassower, Xplore’s chairman and CEO. "We believe the value proposition of our rugged tablet computer should make it the device of choice for military field applications. We believe that this purchase order is an initial indication of our potential in the military sector."
"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," said Mark Holleran, Xplore’s president and COO. "We believe Xplore’s ultra rugged tablet solution is gaining traction in military applications in the U.S. and other countries by delivering on our promise of value, performance and reliability. We 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."
