iPhone 5C will start at $549 without contract for 16GB and $649 for 32GB. Two year contract will make it $99 and $199 respectively. (This makes it roughly 35K, for a plastic body :-\)
iPhone 5C is available in five different colours and is made of plastic!
As Apple is losing market share to rivals like Samsung, it decided to bring in a budget phone and voila, this is what they have brought!
$549 does not look cheap for markets like India and China. Apple will hold an event in China to announce its partnership with China Mobile, the world’s biggest carrier.
Along with this iPhone 5 which runs on A6 processor will be discontinued. iPhone 4S is here to say and finally 8GB 4S will be free with 2-year contract. (Kush to bohot hue hoge, but India me aj bhi contract pe phone nahi chalte dost, so you will have to buy it at usual rate)
With 5C comes in $29.99 cases in 6 colours with soft matte finish.
iPhone 5C has better battery life than iPhone 5! On LTE it can run for 10 hours as opposed to 8 hours for iPhone 5. Standby time though is 250 hours compared to 225 hours of iPhone 5.
