@far911: Isnt it a sign of desperation ? What si the value of a Smart Phone ? It should be a smart phone not something similar to a smart phone.

Whats wrong with it, finding some thing accessable for every kind a markaet is the right thing to ,they can capture niche and normal market with this strategy.

This 5c is being targeted for the lower income market right ? Im not sure why Apple has done something like that since that shows how desperate they are. Smart phones should have some class to hold on and Apple is ruining it

Good observation on the battery size.  Imagine how much smaller and lighter the unit would be with a battery half this size ('AirPhone')

I agree with your comment about it looking toy-like, Jenn. Doesn't this seem uncharacteristic for Apple? I always thought their products had a kind of elegance to them.

Despite the feeble battery life, I'm always impressed that the battery takes up half of the device.  Clearly, this is where technology really needs to be applied.

And while it is sturdier than it looks, I just don't anticipate the plastic button lasting for any great length of time. I bought my iPhone 4 when it was released in the summer of 2010 and it's still going strong - I just don't see that happening with the 5c.

It's definitely designed as a "disposable" device.  Apple has lost the younger market over the years.  Companies like Nokia and Samsung have creatively (and humourously) pointed that out in their ad campaigns.

The colour choices mimic popular cosmetics.

A friend of mine recently bought the 5c and I had a chance to check it out first hand. I have to say, I was not impressed. While it is sturdy, it definitely looks like it was made for a teenager or even a child. I say this based on the display alone - it looks like a toy.

I think it's a bit early to call things. iPhone 5c was released very recently and to predict on how it will move in the future is too early at this point. We should let some more time to provide us the actual demand for this phone itself and then come into conclusion.
