HP Drops iPod Reselling
Effective immediately, Hewlett Packard has announced it is stepping away from the deal to sell rebranded Apple iPods.
"I can confirm we have exited the relationship," Hewlett-Packard spokesman Ryan Donovan said. He could not immediately provide further details.
A spokeswoman for Apple told the Wall Street Journal that reselling the iPod no longer fit with HP's current digital media strategy. Having just announced a refresh to the Apple iPod + HP lineup, current stock will be sold until no more is available, and there will be no subsequent orders from HP.
