Hewlett-Packard is acquiring Tabblo to help customers to be able to print from the web more easily.
Tabblo’s technology allows people to simply and efficiently arrange and print text, graphics and photos from the web. This is made possible by Tabblo’s custom template engine, using a Web 2.0 Ajax-enriched interface.
HP plans to make the web-printing product broadly available to users by working with other companies to integrate the technology into their websites.
“HP’s goal is to make printing content from the web the easiest and best experience possible for people – whether they are printing a simple map or a book of their favourite blogs,” said Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice-president for the HP Imaging and Printing Group.
“By acquiring Tabblo’s technology and making it available to companies that host popular websites, HP will be firmly on the path to becoming the print engine of the web,” he said.
Tabblo is being acquired by HP for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition is expected to be completed within the next few weeks, said HP.
