HP Adds iPod Mini Just in Time for Summer

Expanded online library of HP Printable Tattoos extends personalization to wider audience

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 2, 2005 — HP today added the Apple iPod mini from HP to its line of digital music players.

The Apple iPod mini from HP is available in two models: the 4 gigabyte (GB) version holding up to 1,000 songs and the 6 GB version holding up to 1,500 songs.(1)

Both versions feature a touch-sensitive click wheel for easy, one-handed navigation, battery life of up to 18 hours, USB charging and an ultra-portable, lightweight design. The music players also include earbud headphones, a belt clip and a USB 2.0 cable.

HP also unveiled its new HP Printable Tattoos for the Apple iPod mini from HP, which allow consumers to personalize their digital accessories with artwork, designs and photography. During the next six months, HP will roll out more than 300 new images, including album art from the hottest bands and recording artists, as well as unique artwork.

The new Tattoo gallery features sports, nature, lifestyle and art sections in addition to many other categories. Consumers can explore the full gallery of Tattoo designs at http://www.hp.com/music.

These ultra-thin HP Printable Tattoos are easy to apply and remove from the iPod mini’s exterior. Durable and water-resistant, the Tattoos help to protect the iPod mini from scratches while adding a touch of personal style.

Consumers can print their mini Tattoos from an HP Photosmart 375 Compact Photo Printer. The printer uses HP Vivera Inks to deliver amazing color, which gives the Tattoos a rich and vibrant look that enhances any design consumers choose. HP Printable Tattoos are sold in packs of five printable glossy paper sheets that are pre-cut to fit the Apple iPod mini from HP. The retail price for HP Printable Tattoos for the iPod mini is $9.99.(2)

Consumers can also personalize their listening experience through iTunes, software that is preinstalled on all HP PCs, enabling consumers to download music and manage it in a variety of ways to match their tastes and styles.

The iPod mini’s USB 2.0 cable connects to a PC and enables consumers to easily sync up their music and playlists. Both models of the iPod mini as well as the Apple iPod from HP 20 GB, 30 GB and 60 GB, are backed by HP’s Total Care customer support. This includes one year of phone support and a one-year limited warranty.

The Apple iPod mini from HP as well as HP Printable Tattoos and accessories are available to consumers in the United States and Canada online at hpshopping.com starting June 5, and shortly thereafter at major retailers, including Radio Shack, Sears and Wal-Mart.
