Proven rugged. Mountable. Easy to carry and hold. 


CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA – February 21, 2023 – Microsoft Surface Pro 9 customers have a new option for device protection and productivity enhancement in more challenging environments. MobileDemand, leading provider of rugged tablets, cases and all-in-one mobile computing solutions for enterprise productivity, today announced the launch of the rugged xCase for the Microsoft Surface Pro 9. The xCase is certified by the Designed for Surface® program. This 4th generation certified xCase is compatible with both the Surface Pro 9 and Surface Pro 9 with 5G. 

Designed for Microsoft Surface® Certified 

The Surface Pro 9 xCase is the latest addition to MobileDemand’s growing list of products that have been certified by Microsoft’s Designed for Surface program. Products with the Designed for Surface accreditation have been thoroughly evaluated and tested by Microsoft’s Designed for Surface team to validate compatibility with their industry leading Surface portfolio. The certification assures end-users of the functionality of the xCase. 

Microsoft Surface Pro 9 paired with the rugged protection and add-on capabilities of the rugged xCase, available in both Standard and Premium versions, enables frontline workers to take this enterprise device into more industries and applications than ever before. 

“We are excited to see MobileDemand’s dedication to our mutual customers as part of our long-standing partnership through the Designed for Surface program,” says Patrick Mendenall, Director of Microsoft Designed for Surface. “Their line of rugged xCases for Surface Pro and Go are a popular choice among Microsoft enterprise customers, so it’s great to see the newest generation xCase for the Surface Pro 9 added to their broad range of Surface products.” 

“With the continued success of the xCase for Microsoft Surface products, we are excited to now offer our solution for the latest addition to the Microsoft Surface Pro lineup,” said MobileDemand President and CTO Matt Miller. “The Designed for Surface certified xCase offers essential device protection and provides frontline workers with the productivity features needed to complete business critical tasks more efficiently.” 

Proven rugged 

The xCase adds rugged protection to the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 with sealed ports, shock absorbing rubber corner bumpers and a rigid shell. The MobileDemand xCase is engineered to meet rigorous MIL-STD-810H standards, passing a 5-foot drop test a total of 26 times on every face, side, edge, corner, and surface. MobileDemand utilizes a 3rd-party drop test organization for all xCase drop testing. 


The xCase enables the Surface Pro 9 to be mounted nearly anywhere, thanks to MobileDemand’s patented Snap Mount Plate paired with RAM Mounts’ substantial eco-system of rugged and versatile mounting solutions. The snap plate, preinstalled to the back of the xCase, quickly and easily snaps into the optional mounting rail which can be securely attached to walls, beams, counters, carts, desks, vehicles; wherever the work may be. An innovative magnetic mount system is available for attaching to metal walls, sides of machinery, and vehicles without having to drill holes. 

The mount system is engineered for quick insertion and release of the Surface Pro 9, yet tough enough to withstand demanding applications. 

Easy to carry and hold 

Designed for the frontline worker, the xCase features a briefcase handle for easy and convenient device carrying while on the move, helping to prevent accidental drops. Also included is the ergonomic, glove-fitting back hand strap enabling frontline workers to easily hold the device in the palm of their hands while actively using the device. The hand strap’s flexible elastic bands are secure yet comfortable, eliminating strain from holding the device for an extended period. 

Ready to deploy, bundled solution 

MobileDemand takes the hassle out of installation by offering the xCase as a bundled solution for added convenience and quick deployment. The Standard xCase bundle includes the preferred Microsoft Surface Pro 9 device assembled with the corresponding xCase and pre-applied standard or anti-glare screen protector. Additional accessories are also pre-assembled: back hand strap, briefcase handle and snap plate. The Premium xCase bundle features everything included in the Standard bundle, plus an easel, stylus holder and tether. 

The company’s growing portfolio of xCases provides unique, productivity-enhancing features for leading enterprise devices. With its durable rugged construction, convenient mobility features and nearly unlimited mounting solutions, the new xCase for the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 extends the life and capability of the world-class device. 

The rugged xCase for the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 is available to order now.
