Hewellett-Packard to stop reselling iPods
Hewlett-Packard Co. says it will stop reselling Apple Computer Inc.’s popular iPod digital music players, ending a partnership introduced with much fanfare by HP’s now-ousted CEO Carly Fiorina.
Both companies on Friday confirmed the end of a deal that has contributed to about 5 percent of the iPod’s total shipments.
“HP has decided that reselling iPods does not fit within the company’s current digital entertainment strategy,” Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said. “As a result, HP plans to stop reselling iPods by the end of this September.”
