The white iPhone 4 has yet to come to fruition, but it looks like that hasn’t deterred Apple from experimenting with future, pale products. According to 9 to 5 Mac, Apple is working on a white iteration of its yet-to-be-announced iPad 2. The information comes courtesy of the above image, which is purportedly a white bezel (also known as the digitizer) from the next generation iPad. The above bezel looks extremely similar to leaked images of the black digitizer that have been circulating the Web. It also appears to match the design of potential iPad 2 screen protectors revealed earlier this month. Hit the jump for a second image showing the rear side of the panel, and sit tight until March 2nd when all this should be hashed out. More →
If 9to5Mac is correct, the photo you see above, that originally appeared on a Chinese reseller of Apple’s parts’ website, is the front digitizer panel for the next generation iPhone. Set to be announced in June, the iPhone 5 has been rumored to include a larger display in the 4-inch range, bumping up from the 3.5-inch size that Apple has used since the handset’s original introduction and features an edge-to-edge screen. In addition to the larger display, the new iPhone is said to be completely redesigned even though the iPhone 4 introduced just six months ago was a radical departure from the previous models.
UPDATE: Sorry ladies and gents, it looks like this is just a Photoshop job. More →
Several days ago, we saw Google’s Andy Rubin pawing an unreleased Motorola tablet running Android 3.0… and we liked it. Now, to further whet your appetite, a tantalizing screen shot of Honeycomb’s 3D live wallpapers, along with some device specifications, have surfaced in Taiwan.
The screen shot taker describes the tablet as “light” and pontificates that the hardware is ready for launch; it is now waiting on Google to finish baking Honeycomb. The Motorola tablet, according to the gentleman who had a close encounter, has a 1280 x 800 display, NVIDIA Tegra 2 T20 processor, 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, 2 megapixel front-facing camera, a microSD card slot, and 32GB of built in storage.
The tablet will be available in both a 7-inch and 10-inch form-factor and should come with three different wireless options for on-the-go connectivity: UMTS, CDMA, or LTE. Sign us up.

MacRumors is reporting that they have acquired images of the front LCD screen for the yet-to-be-released fourth generation Apple iPod Touch. The upper ribbon-cable that connections the display to the logic board reads “Apple 2010” and the part looks extremely similar to the screen used by the iPhone 4. The front panel also has a gap where a front-facing camera would presumably go. We are starting to wonder how Apple is going to market the new iPod Touch, and what the fate of the older hard-drive based iPod will be. Any guesses? More →
