HP gets the iPod photo

So it was big news back in August when HP finally introduced their own (slightly) branded version of the iPod. The partnership was supposed to both revitalize HP and help Apple gain access to HP's massive retail distribution channels, too bad it didn't exactly work out that way. The "Apple iPod from HP" didn't sell as well as expected, and when Apple introduced the iPod photo a couple of months later, an "Apple iPod photo from HP" was nowhere to be found. It would have been fair to assume that after Carly's passing that HP and Apple were just gonna let things slide, but HP announced today that the hPod lives: they're going to be carrying HP-branded versions of both the 30GB and 60GB iPod photo, selling each for the same price as its regular Apple counterpart.
