White iPod touch front panel pictured online?

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.
