D2 Technologies, which markets embedded IP communications software platforms, has acquired Webia Technologies through an all-stock transaction.

Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, with development centers in Taiwan and Shanghai, China, Webia was one of the first software vendors to introduce set-top box media player platforms based on Google’s Android OS.

Webia recently unveiled what it claims is the world’s first Android TV solution at Broadband Taiwan 2010.

D2 provides a converged communications client dubbed mCUE that offers OEMs a platform for Android OS-based devices such as tablets, IP media phones, connected TVs and mobile handsets, delivering services like Skype, GoogleTalk and Yahoo! Messenger.

Through the acquisition of Webia, D2 says its mCUE platform is now even more ideally designed for connected TVs and set-top boxes.

John Wu, formerly CEO of Webia, joins D2 as VP of products for the company’s Mobile and Personal Communications Business Unit (MPCBU). He will be based in D2’s Taiwan offices.
