Apple revealed the price tag for the new iPhone 5C, during an event at its Cupertino, California, headquarters, on Tuesday. According to the company’s statement, the 16GB version will be available for $99, while the 32GB version, for $199, both on a two-year contract. Also, if you’ll want to purchase a silicon rubber custom case, you’ll have to pay an extra $29 for a piece. The device is made out of hard-coated polycarbonate and comes in five wonderful colors: green, white, blue, pink and yellow. I personally find the prices quite affordable and can’t decide what color to get, as they are all so lovely.
The mid-range device is said to be released in late September, but no release date has been made official yet. Its specs will be decent, but nothing spectacular. I guess you weren’t expecting spectacular for this price. However, more people will afford purchasing it, so that’s a plus for both the company and the users. According to our source, the iPhone 5C will feature a 4-inch Retina display which is not that impressive for iPhone users, an A6 processor, 8MP iSight camera, backside illumination, a new FaceTime HD camera, 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4Ghz and 5GHz dual band wifi, Bluetooth 4.0.
Reading some user comments, I discovered that they are unsatisfied with the price tag, stating that this is much bigger than articles say it is. As you can see from the photo above, these are the prices that Apple announced, so we’re just passing forward the information. Perhaps they were telling us the off-contract prices. People are also unsatisfied with the plastic cases. Well, in this case, if the price tag we’re giving you is correct, then what would you expect? Let’s just wait for the device to hit the markets and we’ll see what the deal is, then.
