WINNER: XPLORE TECHNOLOGIES XSLATE B10 RUGGED TABLET
With its XSlate B10, rugged tablet maker Xplore Technologies brings to market an affordable, versatile 10.1-inch-display Windows tablet meant to withstand the harshest of environments, including exposure to extreme temperatures, dust, salt water, vibrations -- and those of us who are prone todrop things. Xplore, a rising star among rugged tablet makers, introduced the XSlate B10 just recently. CRN had a chance to take the tablet for a spin -- and drop it a few times as well. For a price of $2,800, the XSlate B10 impressed reviewer with its no-compromise specs and its expandability via eight standard ports.
