HP (Hewlett Packard) announced a rebranded version of Apple's 4th generation iPod on 27 August 2004. The HP iPod was identical to Apple's except that HP's logo was also etched on the back of the unit, along with Apple's. HP continued to sell rebranded iPods (including the 1st gen iPod minis, and the iPod shuffle) under a deal with Apple until after the iPod color, when they officially ended the relationship.

  • HP also introduced an iPod 'Tattoo' service for creating customised iPod stickers.
  • The warranty for HP branded iPods was with HP, not Apple. Anyone with a hardware fault that is still covered by the warranty should contact HP for information on how to proceed.
  • Before the partnership was announced, rumors were abound that Apple & HP were working on bringing WMA support to the iPod, as well as a special edition blue coloured HP iPod. Both these rumors turned out to be false or a change in plan before the official announcement.
