    So other than the fingerprint scanner and the 120 FPS slow-mo shooting, there isn't anything really new

    Funny bit is, that people are going ga-ga over the iPhone 5c, that it's unashamedly plastic, and they have merged it so well, and it looks like this and that.


    Wait a minute. Has no one seen the Lumia 620/820 and the likes?

    It's the same type of design, nothing path breaking there!

    According to many Analyst Apple is just trying to sell the same iPhone 5 with a higher margin. The iPhone 5c is cheaper only for Apple to manufacture they're trying to maximize their profits ... (as always) hence the near same price as last year's iPhone 5.

    Lets wait for the new series of iPhone ads to see how Apple decides to market it .. the 5c going by the Keynote speech would be for Teenagers .. due to multiple colors and a more durable Plastic body.
