With the Tabblo Print toolkit, developers can add printing functionality into existing websites that will take their site content and reformat it in a fashion that is more attractive for printing and reading options. The blog printing widget is part of the Tabblo Print Toolkit release, and lets readers pick and choose (with check boxes) which posts they’d like to print. It’s currently available as a plug-in for WordPress and Movable Type.
This way of offering tools for publishers that extends features to the end reader is a great way for HP to further penetrate industries, and improves the way in which web content can be shared offline, giving more control to the end user. Tools such as this could eventually be impactful on other third party services that offer printing options, such as Sharedbook.
