Too bad Apple didnt figure this out with the MacBooks. It would be a whole lot easier to say MacBookC than Mid-2012 13" Core i7 MacBook, especially if that was also printed on the product as is the 5c.You see why I say this deviates from Apples standard naming protocol.The iPod Touch doesn't do this, either. It's not the iPod Touch C, it's the iPod 5th Generation 2013 16GB model (which has similar internal (and external) changes to Touch.So it's inconsistent and will...
"C" is for cheap. It was a bad choice, in my opinion. They should have just left it iPhone 5, and marketed it as the same great iPhone with a stylish new look. Plus it deviates from Apple's standard product naming convention.I still can't figure out the road map for it and how the plastic case is going to save them that much money in the long run, considering the retooling and redesign setup costs.So the iPhone 5c moves down to the "free" model when the iPhone 6 comes out....
Oh holy crap!!With that line up they might as well add Performa, Quadra, and LC to the names ... Or change their name to Apple-sung.
Why is it called the 5c? Isn't it exactly the 5, with minor improvemets, but in a plastic case? It's priced as the 5 would be priced. It wouldn't be the first time Apple completely redesigned a case and retained the same product name, even confusingly so -- witness anyone trying to figure out which MacBook they own for support. The iPhone 5 isn't being sold anywhere else is it? I just don't get it. It's counter to Apple's usual simplicity of product labeling, and...
Nothing says class and elegance like gold colored plastic.
More Importantly how does it compare to the 4S during the 5 introduction?Sorry, The more I think about it, and see Apple's ridiculous monotone color billboards around town, the more I think they missed the timing here. They should have introduced the plastic colored case when they introduced the iPhone 4, a natural evolution from the 3G/S. Now it just feels like a step backward, and people will react to that, especially when Apple is charging premium prices for it, and...
How is GOLD a feature!?It certainly has no place in the review of the 5s features, and if it does, so does Space Gray.
That will be the test won't it?The carriers will be able to give us specific sales information. But ultimately, it's undecided people going in to buy a phone, who don't really care what brand they are buying who will determine if the 5c will be successful.If the phone vs branded as a kids phone, it most likely won't help it's reputation worldwide where the iPhone has been reported as a status symbol. The 5c may sell very poorly in China for instance if not perceived as...
How about the weather icon show the actual local temperature the way Calendar shows the actual date!? That's what I thought they were going to eventually do ... What a missed opportunity. Some things Microsoft's live tiles actually got right ... 3D weather graphics ... Pointless
Oh riiiiiiight.We'll likely never know how well the 5c does.They've invested in it, so they will get their two years out of it regardless. If it sells poorly this year, it will drop down to the entry level offering next year, likely in fewer color offerings, and the 5S will drop down to the number two phone as usual with the redesigned 6 taking the top spot.I suppose once it becomes the entry level model, they could keep the design indefinitely, and maybe that's the plan....
