    It is a good move. There's no doubt about it. It makes sense and will gain Apple a lot of new customers. Plus iOS7 is great.

    supposedly the 5c is just a 5 with colors and a cheaper price. I think it will bring in a lot of users that couldn't afford a new iphone before. colors seem to be the "in" thing.

    Apple is just not doing their thing anymore

    Actually, they are doing it more than ever. Apple made the smartphone world as we know it. And they are continuing to refine that product into a better one each year. With iOS7 it's going to be a stellar year for apps and developers. People are only looking at the face of 7 at the moment. Because it's not yet released.

    Well I have no doubt it will sell, iPhones have a tendency to do so, not sure how many new customers it will draw

    Because Apple has to go after the emerging markets. The 5C will sell very well here in the States and UK. Along with the rest if the EU. It fills that gap of a "new" iPhone that's less expensive for those customers that choose Android because of it. That's were Android has it's market share. Not S4 and Notes. The cheap devices that fill the need of $99 or Free to those that don't want to pay for the high end stuff. But it's the emerging markets that Apple has it's eye on. Asia to be specific. Over 51% of the worlds population resides there. With Apple having an event on the 11th in China. It all but confirms that the largest Chinese carrier is now on board with Apple. The 5C will be Apples biggest seller so far due to this region alone.

    Steve Jobs may have been a great showman and perfectionist. But it's Tim Cook who's taken Apple to where it's at and where it's going to be a powerhouse for years to come.

    I don't think anyone is arguing if it's going to sell...

    The argument i'm making is that it's not worth buying.

    For me anyway.

    It's not for me either. But we're not the target market for it. We're the high end market.

    I do think it's definitely worth buying if you're that low cost spender. You'll get a great phone with access to the best App Store. Receive updates for at least three years and support like no other in this industry. Add all that up plus you're getting a new to this year device and it's win/win For Apple and it's customer. I think we'll see a lot of Android defectors with this one. Plus many that will be first time buyers.
