Apple partner HP has confirmed speculation and added iPod minis to its range of digital music players in the US.

These products will be sold as the "Apple iPod mini from HP" with both 4GB and 6GB versions of the device being available, which are feature-identical with the Apple equivalents, reports CNBC.

HP also unveiled new HP Printable Tattoos for the Apple iPod mini from HP.

HP only sells these licensed HP iPods in the US, Macworld believes.
