    I bought the iPad on the day it came out. I wanted the black, but they only had white left, so I just went with it. Now, I'm regretting it and was wondering if there's a kit or a cover or something to convert the white to black?

    Step 1: sell it on ebay. Youll still get top dollar if you have all the packaging and accessories.

    Step 2: buy the black one

    Can always check on craigslist if there's someone in your area who wanted white and got black.

    The White/Black bezel is not clipped on like it was on the first iPad, now they use glue, and lots of it. I wouldn't feel comfortable with any conversion kit.

    like others have said, sell it and buy it again.

    A can of gloss black spray paint, some old newspaper and a roll of masking tape...

    The whole bezel is glass. That would look incredibly bad.

    Ok, so first pry off the bezel with a rusty screwdriver...

    As the OP has the iPad 2, this protector would cover up the camera. Or I guess he could take a hole-puncher to it if the screens/bezel are exactly the same size on each gen...

    If you're laughing it sounds like the joke was a success.
