A continuation of Apple’s agreement with HP allowing them to sell branded iPod music players brings the Mini to HP.

And just in time for summer, too.

The Palo Alto-based computer company has a couple of new models for its line of digital music players. The Apple iPod Minis will be available in 4GB and 6GB capacities.

Both include the unique navigation click wheel, 18 hours of battery life, and USB charging. The little Mini offers a very lightweight, portable design, and ships with the familiar white earbud headphones, and a belt clip and USB 2.0 cable.

To change the look of the iPod Mini, HP has introduced the HP Printable Tattoos for the Mini. Users will be able to personalize the Mini with their own artwork or photos. And during the next six months, HP will release a selection of over 300 images, including album art from current artists.

The iPod Mini and the Printable Tattoos will go on sale on HP’s shopping web site beginning Sunday. After that, retailers like Wal-mart and Sears will carry the HP-branded iPod Mini as well.
