When it is introduced I expect we will see a big advertising campaign that reinforces "C is for Color" and they could take it even a step further and do various commercials like C is for capable, cool, connect (FaceTime reference)  etc...   I am sure Samsung and others will do their best to associate C with cheap so Apple needs to squash that right away and make C be associated with something cool and not cheap. 
I agree. If the iPhone 5C had the same internal specs and features as the 5S I would actually prefer a plastic version over an aluminum one if it meant I could ditch the case. The only reason I would prefer the 5S is because of the faster CPU/GPU, a better camera, and other enhancements and not because of any design aesthetics. 
Simple. Then don't buy it.   I think it will be the best selling iPhone by a very wide margin. It will be far more affordable but not cheaply built. It will likely have the same internals as the 5 which is a fast phone and no need to buy a case which can also be a selling point for many.    And since when was aluminum consider to be a premium or expensive material? 
I agree with everything in your post except the part about NFC. I doubt Apple will add that unless it augments Passbook.    It also make a lot of sense to have two big iPhone announcements twice a year. Once in the fall every year for the two 4" models and once in the Spring with a larger iPhone. This is what they used to do with the iPad as the big Spring announcement. It would also allow them to use newer components in the larger version  which requires less engineering...
First of all there that been fragmentation in iOS land for some time. It hasn't been that big of a deal. We are not talking about dozens of displays or resolutions like they have for Android just one addition. Developers would quickly and easily modify their apps just like they did for all the previous changes.    I have no idea why you think the techies are requesting this. Although I am sure some techies might prefer a larger screen that is not the key demographic....
Yes I used to have a Denon receiver that was a goldish color and I liked it very much. 
  Exactly. That is why it is all the more frustrating to read dozens of articles discussing the shade of gold that will be used and other relatively unimportant details and almost nothing about the new radio that will be used. A universal radio would open to the door selling the iPhone to EVERY single customer in the world regardless if their carrier has a contract with Apple or not as long as they would activate it on their networks. They would have little reason not to...
Even with a new color there will likely be less SKU's than currently since they will likely use a radio that will work on all bands all over the world regardless if they use CDMA/GSM/FD-LTE/TD-LTE. Currently they have to make 3 maybe 4 different iPhone models which adds up when you take into account they have to do this for each 16/32/64GB models.    This all assumes they will use the new Qualcomm RF360 or similar which is not guaranteed by any means but does seem...
I disagree and think that people that would be attracted to this color would prefer a uniform color just like the white and black versions of the iPhone offer. It is all personal taste but I just don't like the contrast and see no reason why the front face has to stick with black or white. This is after all the part of your phone that you view the most and if you wanted a white iPhone why not just get one.    Part of the problem is also just the relatively large part of...
If they want to go with a champagne gold color then go all the way. I don't like the white face. While using the phone all you would see is the white on the front which defeats the purpose of offering a new color.
