    Yes, I saw a brief shot of one on CNBC today, but it wasn't clear and I wasn't sure exactly what it was. Do you happen to have a photo of one?

    20GB- $299
    40GB- $399

    Question: Does this new iPod come in differnet packaging and does it have a stupid HP simble on the back, really does everything look the same because I would not buy one if they had different writing on the back or something like that! How about all you, would you buy this iPod if it had different writing on the back?

    Also the HP web site says that these new iPod will ship on september 15.

    I'd go for it if the price was better. It's the same machine- still an overprices hard drive.

    I was wondering about the price of the tattoo's not the iPod's and you can view them on a lot of the mac sites and hp's site also.

    I'm usually very good at internet searching, but I can't seem to find any photos on HP's site or anywhere else. If you could post a few links, I would really appreciate it.

    Well one thing I think is a good thing that is that HP didn't modify the physical build, that's class

    iMO the tatoos sound a bit cheap, esp. as HP says they last around 2-3 weeks...

    That sounds like bits of tatoo sticking to the ipod and then slowly peeling off...*shudder*

    i don't think this is a good move for apple... The iPod brings people to macs (I switched due to my iPod) and encourages switching. By associating the iPod not with Apple, but with HP, you're weakening the entire brand..

    I disagree.....It may have an HP symbol BENEATH the apple one....but it's still an Apple....People will see that...and people will think wow, if Apple can make an mp3 player this good, lets check out their computers....

    Also, this actually may bring MORE switchers...I mean if the above theory proves to be correct.....you may want to take another look at that marketshare percentage.....

    Yeah I agree, the iPod is very much known and regardless if it has an HP symbol or an Apple symbol people know that it is from Apple and HP has a huge market.. it's going to be interesting to see how it all plays out
