Phone backs expected to ship in multiple colors
A new video shows an alleged rear shell for the iPhone 5C from all dimensions. The shell in question uses a yellow plastic back, although the source of the video, Sonny Dickson, has also released photos of 5C shells in green and white colors in recent days. In separate leaks, red and blue shells have been seen.
The 5C -- predicted to be announced next month -- should solve a common complaint about the iPhone, namely the cost of a new model. The iPhone 5 for example starts at $199 with a two-year contract, but is $649 unlocked, making it particularly expensive if a person wants to use it with a prepaid data plan. Apple does have cheaper options, but only in the form of devices that are one or two years old.
