Hewlett-Packard announced on Friday that it has added the iPod shuffle to its lineup of HP-branded iPods. The “iPod shuffle from HP” is identical to Apple’s version and comes in both the 512MB ($99.99) and 1GB ($129.99) sizes. The HP iPod shuffle is available now online at hpshopping.com and will soon be at major retailers, including Radio Shack, Sears and Wal-Mart. HP now sells all current iPods except for the special edition U2 iPod.

“HP now sells all current iPods except for the special edition U2 iPod.”

Well I just looked, and their only 20GB iPod has a black and white screen.

This surprises me.  I haven’t seen iPod+HP models around much anymore..Didn’t even know they still had them.  Most places around my town sell Apple iPods over the HP ones…

Can anyone tell me why there are HP branded ones anyway? What’s the difference? Do they still use itunes and apple firmware, or do they use HP versions? Because if the price is the same, I’m not sure one would choose an HP one over an Apple original? Or maybe there’s something cool about it that I’m missing?
