    I was doing some reading on the history of the iPod and ran across this. It surprised me to say the least.

    Who here has an HP iPod?

    I used to have one of these. It was functionally identical to a regular iPod. IIRC they used the HP branding to be sold in retail stores where Apple had no presence at the time (Best Buy, etc).

    Radio Shack used to be a big distributor of these. I never quite understood the idea behind them - I guess Jobs had a soft spot for HP since that was one of his first employers.

    My first iPod was a 20 GB 4G iPod+HP. Loved it, but badly mistreated it and it died a very premature death. :eek: The only differences were the branding on the back plate, and the same in the legal info.

    I have one of the 20gb still sealed in original box and wrap. Any estimates on what it could be worth.
