In a letter to its dealer base, Meridian has announced that it will develop a Sooloos music management app for Hewlett-Packard‘s new TouchPad tablet. 

In a letter to its dealers, Meridian Audio’s CEO Tim Ireland says the system will “be the preferred music management application for future products using the WebOS. This operating system was acquired by HP when it bought Palm last year and will be used on most new HP products as part of a strategy to provide a fully integrated home and office to the consumer.”

Ireland goes on to tell integrators, “We certainly expect users to want to learn more about Meridian and how they can enhance their listening experience with our products. HP sells more PCs than any other company and it is anticipated that millions more people will become aware of our brand and what it stands for.”

He adds, “This increased brand awareness and associated positive publicity will only help grow sales of our core business.”
