Earlier this summer 9to5Mac and iFixYouri found some white iPod touch 5 front panels floating around, and now teardown site iFixDirect has gotten their hands on something similar. Given we saw the iPad 2 get a white version this year, it only makes sense that the iPod touch would follow suit sooner or later.
I'm typically a little skeptical with part leaks but the connectors and circuitry appear to be a bit different than the current 4th generation iPod touch, which makes this a bit more believable. Other than adding a white iPod touch to the current line up, it doesn't seem like the form factor will deviate much from the current lineup. We'll probably see more changes internally than anything which are the types of changes I prefer seeing anyways. Have you told us [what you want to see in iPod touch 5] yet?
