    The 5C was the only thing I was just a bit interested in (for my daughter) namely because I had heard that it was supposed to be a budget device.

    But this price is ridiculous, I could buy 4-5 Lumia 520 off contract for that.

    Now back to work trying to convince her that she is actually much better off with a Lumia.

    My daughter was the same way. Just HAD to have an iPhone on the grounds that "every one else has one" and all the popular teen apps are on it.

    My wife and I got our Lumia 920s and my daughter played around a bit and couldn't wait until her phone was eligible for an upgrade. As soon as it was, she had the date in her calender, she dumped the iPhone and got a 920. Since school started, at least three of her friends have dumped their iPhones for Lumias and others are thinking about it.

    The biggest thing, not one complaint about missing apps.

    You know I don't really care what Apple does but it's gonna boil me up everytime whenever I pull out my lime green 620 in front of some noobs, someone's going to say "IT'S THAT THE NEW IPHONE 5C?!!". ARRRGGHH!!! D*mn you Apple!!!
    To be honest this a really good way of showing off your Windows Phone device. Apple did us all a favour by copying the luminosity of the Lumia and more people will pick a Lumia up thinking it is the new fruityPhone and be charmed by what they see. Hell, some of them might even BUY one thinking it IS the 5C

    Well played Apple. Your popularity will be your undoing

    I think Apple is pretty smart. They know that they can sell any phone at any price, and consumers will be all over it! Of course you need to add something marginally useful like a fingerprint reader, which my HP iPaq with WM had on it years ago, but this time it's innovation at its finest.

    Well they did copy first, with the Lumia 800 and 900. It was the 2nd gen nano. But I do like how they put it.

    to be fair, they are pretty ugly, I mean, did they have to use dots? They couldn't have just made solid cover? I mean, I will give props to samsung, something that I never do, but at least their screen cover thing that inserts into the back plate of the phones look unobtrusive, these covers just look ugly.

    It seems like, Apple is losing its mind completely.
    The most innovative OS ever (So Ios8 and next OSes in future will be worst/innovation less you telling me?)
    with No NFC so you cannot do anything you could have done with your smartphone
    No Wireless Charging, we love clutter of wire everywhere, it shows that we are working hard and so are you!
    Completely Overpriced to rip you off (Apple policy since day 1), but hey it is a budget phone and there's no doubt about it!
    Completely Innovative "Copied" Style (From Lumia 620, we recently hired an Ex-Nokia Designer for $2 an hour and we can say he did a fantastic job, we are going to make piles of cash from 5c)
    Recycled material used, we have used discarded croc sandals from 3rd world countries to design the outer casing of the 5c since we care about the planet, its completely hygienic and safe for children too!
    I5 is discontinued, because it was a fail anyway, 5c is the best device and it comes in multiple colors too!

    Images to laugh the living hell on earth.

    If Nokia really moves in with the 1520 on the 23rd of this month, I think it can be a game changer for WP's market share. Larger screens (4.3 - 5.0) are the fastest growing segment among android devices and Apple is still below that range. Bigger phones are in vogue so if the 1520 comes out while people are disappointed by the new iPhones, MS/NOK will strike while the iron is hot.
    Do take a look at this data which reveals how screen size preferences have evolved over the last year: How the Smartphone Market Has Changed Since the iPhone 5

    To top it off on a side note, the financial sector and banks in my country (DK) decided today to go for NFC for a mobile pay solution. They consider it the safest and most widespread option of the ones they have reviewed.

    Just gotta love that timing :D
