HP's North American online store has begun accepting pre-orders for the PC maker's own-brand version of Apple's iPod.

Dubbed the 'iPod+HP' - aka 'the Apple iPod from HP' - the device is being offered in its 20GB and 40GB incarnations for $300 and $400, respectively. Orders taken from today onwards will ship on 15 September, the site estimates.

The two models on offer are the fourth-generation iPod, which Apple unveiled in July. HP announced its decision to offer the iPod back in January. In March, HP began to offer a customised version of iTunes and Apple's online iTunes Music Store. Later that month, the company began shipping PCs with iTunes pre-installed.

The HP site pictures white iPods, not blue ones as some had speculated that the company might offer. HP CEO Carly Fiorina is expected for formally announce the iPod+HP availability later today. ®
