9to5Mac has posted an image of what it believes to a photo of a white bezel for the iPad 2. The photo above comes directly out of Shenzhen City (via iFixYouri iPhone repair) and is believed to be the digitizer (sometimes referred to as the "thick bezel") from the iPad 2.

What can we deduce from this new photo? Other than the white color, the most important detail outed by this latest spy shot is the hole in the top of the bezel, which is probably to accommodate a forward-facing "FaceTime HD" camera. The iPad 2's front camera is most likely to be the same camera as the one in the 2011 MacBook Pro that was just released.

Will it be white only? Doubtful. I expect that if Apple indeed releases a white model, that it would be in addition to a standard black model.
