HP iPod To Appear September 5? [Updated x3]

Thanks to an anonymous source, MacRumors has obtained the date of September 5th for availability of the HP branded iPod. Sources state that the HP iPod should differ little from the Apple branded 4th generation iPod. Originally shown by HP's CEO Carly Fiorina, the original plan for the HP iPod was in the 3G model, but after having been informed of the redesign, HP decided to forgo an earlier release and wait for the availability of the 4th generation iPods. Body color is expected to be in 'HP Blue'.

Distribution channels are not clear yet, but the digital jukebox will be available on hpshopping.com on the 5th, with support training for 24/7 support starting on August 30 before launch.

More details should be made available shortly before Apple Expo Paris, starting with Phil Schiller's Keynote speech on August 31st in Steve Job's absence. The new G5 iMac is expected to be released at the Paris expo.

[Update] According to C|net, Carly Fiorina plans to unveil the new HP branded Apple iPod tomorrow (August 27th).

[Update #2] A Webcast of the unveiling is scheduled for tomorrow.

[Update #3] The Apple iPod + HP appears to be nothing more than a standard Apple iPod with a new HP box for reselling. It features the same white casing, Apple logo laser-etched on the back and comes in the same 20 + 40 GB configurations. HP is also offering iPod Tattoos - printable, precut, self-adhesive wraparound stickers to conform to the shape of the iPod.
