Zaandam, The Netherlands (February 21, 2011) – WoodWing Software (, an innovation leader in the tablet-publishing world, announced today that the company’s software supports publishing on the HP TouchPad tablet, first introduced by HP on February 9 at its “Think Beyond” launch event in San Francisco.

“I am very impressed with the HP TouchPad – it's nicely built, very user-friendly and it looks simply great,” said Erik Schut, President of WoodWing Software. “But what a technical person like me appreciates the most is that HP webOS supports native HTML5. This is a great basis for now and the future. As it is part of our strategy to support all platforms relevant for our customers, we are pleased to include the webOS platform for publishers at this early stage.”
