HP today announced its iPod + hp music player, which ships in the US September 15.

International users may face a wait, however, company sources said today.

"The official line is that HP has not announced a shipping date for the UK," they said.

Contrary to expectations, the iPod + hp is not blue, but white. HP has however released new media stock for the product: HP Printable Tattoos.

HP Printable Tattoos: "Allow consumers to personalize the look of their iPod with album cover art from top bands and recording artists, as well as to create their own personalized artwork and photos printed on Tattoo media via an HP colour printer," the company said.
