Reliable source tweets clear photo of Apple iPhone 5C

Reliable source evleaks has just tweeted one of the clearest pictures yet of the budget-priced Apple iPhone 5C. The tweet contains what is apparently an official photograph for a Case Mate case including a colorful plastic casing and an inner bumper that absorbs shocks. Speaking of shocks, Apple executives might be in for a few of their own if the rumored pricing for the plastic device is on target. In an era where a Nokia Lumia 520 can be purchased for less than $175 lock, stock and barrel, pricing the device between $400 and $500 without subsidies doesn't seem competitive in emerging markets.

Just the other day, a video of the Apple iPhone 5C surfing the web showed the usual responsive pinch-to-zoom and scrolling capabilities of mobile Safari. Looks like replacing some of the parts with plastic versions won't slow down the phone a bit. September 10th is the date when we should see both the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C introduced with the actual launch erumored to b for September 20th. And basically the only major question at this point is whether or not the oft-rumored fingerprint scanner will finally be included with the full-priced Apple iPhone 5S.
