The most powerful rugged tablet in the world, and remarkable flexible in functionality.


Think you need a desktop, laptop, and rugged tablet to excel at the tasks you complete in the office, in-vehicle, and in the field? You don’t…anymore. You just need the highly mobile, extremely flexible and always resilient Xplore XSLATE® R12 tablet PC. The transformational 2 in 1 device gives you all the high performance capabilities and complete computing functions you need in a single platform. You’ll have the right connectivity and ergonomics for a quick transition from the field to a full desktop computing experience – and the most conveniently stored Companion Keyboard on the market. It’s fast to deploy when you want a notebook, and even easier to store when you don’t.
