Tabblo, a social network where users can upload photos and integrate stylish templates along with those photos has announced today that they are being acquired by Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE: HPQ).  Hewlett Packard’s appeal in the purchase was fueled particularly by Tabblo’s large network of 150 thousand tabblos (users) and 5 million uploaded photos.  The company started in May 2006.

Tabblo.com will stick around and will be applying new technologies as a result of the acquisition.  HP also owns Snapfish.com, which is also a photo-sharing website.   Tabblo and Snapfish will remain independent of each other.  The founder of Tabblo is Antonio Rodriguez.

“Tabblo is a very cool company with a great product. They’ve got Flickr-like community, they blogged critically about Yahoo while sponsoring Techmeme and I’ll tell you – I often show off the Tabblo of the kids in my family to people who visit my house. Naysers called them an also-ran but they deserve a big congrats today” stated Marshall Kirkpatrick, Director of Content at SplashCast.

The announcement was made official by the Tabblog.
