MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- Xplore Technologies Corp. (TSX:XPL), a leading international developer, producer and distributor of rugged wireless Tablet PC computer systems, and Psion Teklogix, (LSE:PON), a leading global provider of solutions for mobile computing and wireless data collection today announced they have entered into a value added Systems Integration agreement. Psion Teklogix will now sell Xplore's ix104 family of rugged wireless Tablet PC systems as part of its comprehensive mobile computing and wireless data collection solutions for targeted global industries and business applications including airports, field service, automotive, supply chain/cold chain, government, ports and transportation.

"We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Xplore Technologies and leverage our complementary expertise in delivering rugged mobile computing solutions to a range of vertical markets," Richard J. Bauly, VP, Strategy & Business Development, Psion Teklogix. "This strategic partnership enables Psion Teklogix to expand our line of rugged mobile computing devices and provide our global customers with a range of options from rugged tablets to hand-held devices."

Xplore's iX104 family of rugged mobile computing systems provides multiple benefits to enterprise and vertical market clients seeking to implement Tablet PC systems. As an increasing number of job functions and tasks are handled by mobile personnel, the functionality and ruggedness of mobile computing tools needs to keep pace. Xplore's Renegade(TM) line of Tablet PCs is designed for mobile applications that require reliable operation and durability in harsh environments such as extreme operating temperatures, rain, dust, intense vibration and 4 foot drops to concrete. For more challenging environments, Xplore's fully rugged All Terrain(TM) Tablet PC models are UL1604 Hazardous Material Certified and IP67 rated.

Additionally, Xplore's Dual Mode(TM) versions of the Renegade and All Terrain combine an active digitizer and a resistive touch screen which provide users the ability to use either an active stylus for applications that require digital inking for greater accuracy and finger touch input for more utility-centric input requirements. Xplore's iX104 family of products is engineered and third party tested to Military Standards (MIL-STD-810F) for extreme operating conditions.

"Psion Teklogix has been delivering proven wireless mobile computing solutions to vertical market customers for more than three decades", said Brian Groh, President and CEO, Xplore Technologies. "Psion Teklogix is especially active in the European Community, an important market for the ix104(TM) product. Their proven track record in delivering leading-edge rugged mobile computing solutions marries well with our heritage in delivering durable, powerful and flexible Tablet PC systems."
