Alleged images of Apple’s upcoming budget-minded iPhone 5C recently hit the web. The leaked photos specifically show the plastic packaging that Apple will use for a rainbow of colored handsets including pink, white, yellow, green and blue.

So Samsung's commercials for the S4 showing high school grads with the S4 and their 'old' parents with iPhones must have really hit home for Apple. The candy-colored plastic phones should help Apple become attractive again to the younger generation. Maybe we'll be able to buy a Hello Kitty case to go with it. :)

Where is the innovation and leadership we have come to expect from Apple? Is this the best they got without Jobs? Pretty sad.

Honestly smartphones are pretty much maxed out with what you can do right now apart from gimmicky technology thats not even close to perfected.

Id love to see them prove me wrong, especially since they pay people to come up with ideas.
 
I honestly think the cheaper iPhone have cheaper version of their inhouse chips and cheaper plastic cases means they can make more money on them and with Microsoft purchasing Nokia mobile it's not s bad move I mean you get what you payfor with apple ........ With a little help lol

The iPad Mini has lower margins than iPad or any other current Apple product. Most likely a budget version of the iPhone would also carry lower margins.

I can understand why they would create budget phones for developing markets, but it doesn't make as much sense for a market like the U.S. seeing as how older models of the iPhone can be obtained for free (with contract), this might work for prepaid markets as a sub-$400 price tag is much more accessible than a $649 price tag, however the prepaid market is still a minority. I'll have to wait and see until more information comes out.
