Supposed Apple iPhone 5C cases already up for pre-order
Apple hasn't announced the iPhone 5C or even confirmed that it does exist (although we have plenty of leaks to suggest it does), but that isn't stopping one online retailer from putting up iPhone 5C cases for sale. Not surprisingly, the cases are listed for pre-order, and they give absolutely no idea of when the cases will ship. This makes sense, because there is no way a manufacturer could have made cases for a device with unknown dimensions.

The cases are designed to be thin and lightweight. And interestingly, the cases are also designed to make your iPhone 5C look a bit more like an iPhone 5/5S with the two-tone back plate. The leaks we've seen of the iPhone 5C give it a solid coloring like the old iPhone 3G/3Gs, but the case gives adds in the color changes on the top and bottom. 

The case will run you $23, but given that this case won't be manufactured and shipped until the dimensions of the iPhone 5C are official, you may want to just hold off and see what other cases become available.

You would have to be a fool to buy a case for a phone that is nonexistent at this point.

Actually it is not so foolish. There has only ever been one phone that accessories came out for that never came out and that was the first Motorola Bionic. Accessory sellers get it right 9 out of 10 times. There are many cases up for the iPhone 5C up on Amazon from reputable sellers. And the phone is not "nonexistent". People know it is coming out and it is wise for people to get their cases before the phones so they can have a screen protector and case on it since day 1.

iPhone 5c is supposed to be a cheap piece of garbage why would you put a nice case on a crappy phone.

The S4 active was supposed to be rugged and water resistant.

Talk about a cheap piece of garbage. No wonder ATT & Samsung are exchanging water damaged units.

Then there's the case of used S4 going for $30 on contract (also on ATT) because so many people returned their S4.

If you want crappy phones and cheap pieces of plastic, you ought to be looking at Samsung phones.

Shatter just likes to start trouble, unfortunately he doesn't think first. Typical android fanboy, not "android user" there's a huge difference.

Actually it's supposed to be a less expensive Iphone. Apple doesn't make garbage, they make world class devices that deliver as advertised. Casing your device, regardless of who makes it is a good idea. These devices are very expensive, and should be protected. Sorry to make your post look stupid, but.....well it was stupid.

You must be having a terrible nightmare, too bad the iZombies have a hard time opening their eyes.

Nothing you say makes sense, or is funny. Since you hate apple so much, stop complaining on PA cuz we couldn't care less, and take it to Apple HQ

"Nothing you say makes sense, or is funny."
Makes more sense than being an iFan, And I am not trying to be funny, I am trying to pi$$ off the iFans like you.

"Since you hate apple so much,"
But I am not like you, hating on other companies/brands, etc while being a fan.

Even cheap feature phone I see some people use case.

Apple don't really target bottom feeder so I think Apple cheap may not be cheap to most people.

Remember when the iPhone 5 was supposed to have the teardrop design and they let people get the case early from eBay and Amazon? Those people were fools.
