Photographs purportedly showing white front panels for a next-generation iPod touch have been posted online. 9 to 5 Mac reports that the pieces are supposedly digitizer components, based on information received from the iFixYouri repair shop, and appear to be for the fourth-generation model, with two holes for the FaceTime camera and front sensors, respectively. The report notes that the parts could be for a cancelled white 4G model, or parts for a yet-unannounced fifth-generation unit. Notably, Apple executives have previously revealed that work on the long-delayed iPhone 4 helped the company in other areas, and the company has since introduced a white iPad 2, leaving the iPod touch as the only iOS device note available in a white variant.

I said it when the white iPhones came out and I will say it again with a white iPod touch: I am completely shallow and admit I would totally get one of these! I just love old skool white Apple products. I am lamenting the loss of the white iBook (wanted a sandy bridge WHiTeBook so much!) so the white touch is a welcome addition if true. In a few months when my AT&T iPhone contract is up I switch to Virgin Mobile, I am going to get my iOS goodness via iPod touch and I’d love a white one.

Monochromatic colors are very attractive, but for a company that made a huge break when they changed the color of the average desktop, you’d think their higher priced products would have a larger color spectrum.
