If you're looking to purchase a new Apple iPhone 5c or Apple iPhone 5s but keep enough money left over for a celebratory burrito at Chipotle, you might want to consider Walmart as the place to buy your new iOS flavored handset; starting tomorrow, Friday (September 13th), you can pre-order the Apple iPhone 5c from the discount house for $79.99 with a two-year contract...

I expect it to overtake sales of flagship phones from HTC, LG, & Sony in a matter of weeks or a month.

Not much of a prediction, those companies aren't dominant in current sales, or past sales for that matter.
SS is the real test. When both leaders go head to head, predictions mean a lot more if you get it right.

We all know that. Apple is like the Cisco of the Mobile world in America at least. it has the Mind share and loyal following. Although Samsung has really fought hard and it does show that they too are establishing mind share here in America as well. So, I expect to see blow out sales numbers for Apple this holiday season.

One should also mention that the iPhone 5C is a redesigned iPhone 5. In other words: If Apple was successful in the previous years in selling its respective "last year" model after introducing a new model, it is very likely that Apple will also be successful with the 5C. Apple is not focusing on specs but rather on user experience. If the iPhone 5C is able to create the user experience certain people want, then nothing is wrong with it. (Although I believe that the 5C is too expensive by $100.)

I have a strange feeling that the iPhone5C might sell really well because people will just think it's a new iPhone for less than $100 and buy it.
