HP to Offer Branded iPod Shuffle

BetaNews: Hewlett-Packard has recently announced that it will sell its own branded iPod Shuffle. Just like the regular Apple version, the HP Shuffle is compact, lightweight and about the size of a pack of gum. The petite MP3 player comes in signature white and has an attached lanyard so it can be worn around the neck...The unit is available in North America via the company's online store as well as through RadioShack, Sears and Wal-Mart. Pricing will be identical to Apple's, with the 512MB Shuffle retailing for $99 USD holding approximately 120 songs and the 1GB for $129 USD...
itreview: "HP's Shuffle works seamlessly with the AutoFill feature of iTunes, which automatically selects songs from a user's music library to fill up the shuffle with just one click. Users can recharge the device and transfer music from their PC at the same time by plugging the HP directly into the computer's USB port." In addition, the player also works as a portable USB flash drive so you can back up data...
