Xplore Technologies may not be a household name, but that doesn’t mean the company is not trying to carve out a niche for itself.

In this vein, Xplore has unveiled the XSLATE B10, a fully rugged Windows 7/8.1/10 tablet featuring an IP65 rating, an industry standard designating complete protection from dust, oil, and other non-corrosive material, protection from water including water projected by a nozzle.
According to Xplore, the tablet is targeted at engineers in the telco, transportation, distribution, manufacturing and natural resources industries.
The device also features two USB 3.0 ports, microSD, microHDMI, microSIM, audio, RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet, optional HDMI input, 4G LTE broadband, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 8 MP rear and 2 MP front-facing cameras, optional barcode scanner, a 20-hour swappable battery, along with options for accessories.
