There has been talk of a white iPod touch joining the product line when it gets its anual refresh later this year, and a new photo has been released which appears to show parts that confirm just that.

The photo, which shows what is claimed to be a complete front screen from a white iPod touch, comes from notorious tear-down site iFixDirect…

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the white iPod touch seems to be of the same shade and quality as the already available white iPhone 4 and iPad 2, with Apple now confident that the manufacturing problems of last year are firmly behind them. Concerns over staining and color uniformity had delayed the release of the white iPhone 4 for almost 12 months.

The updated iPod touch is expected to be announced at the same event that sees the next iPhone’s unveiling, with late-September to early-October as the believed timeframe.

    The fact that the screen isn’t bigger on this iPod makes me worry about the iPhone, mostly because the iPhone and iPod touch are mostly feature complete besides the fact that one of them has phone functionality.

      Are you stupid? The screen is obviously wider on the sides

    One thing I wish apple would get rid of on the iPod touches is the metal backing here’s my reasons why.

    • It’s sliddy
    • it gets massively scratched and marked even with a cover on
    • I don’t know about you guys/girls but sometimes when I’m holding my iPod my hands get kinda sweaty usually accompanied by a weird feeling in my arms and legs, now this is no problem with a cover on but when it’s the bare metal it’s gets slippy and just feels uncomfortable.
    • Also if your iPod gets hot through any means then that metal gets pretty hot

    Probably after market china stuff. You can get white 3G and 3GS digitizers from eBay. Apple doesn’t make white 3G or 3GS digitizers. They were all black.
