Apple will be bringing the 8GB version of the iPhone 5c to India in the coming weeks. During Apple’s Q2 2014 conference call, CEO Tim Cook said that Indian iPhone sales had more than doubled. India is an emerging market where many of the “next billion” smartphone customers are expected to come from, and getting a lower cost version of Apple’s pop-art-inspired mid-tier iPhone makes a lot of sense. Especially for customers who don’t need to cary around a lot of media with them but do want access to messaging apps and the mobile web.
The iPhone 5s remains the big movie blockbuster that gets everyone lining up, but the iPhone 5c is the hit TV show that’s there week-in, week-out to catch the eye of anyone walking by.
If you’re in India and have been debating an iPhone 5c, will a new, less expensive iPhone 5c appeal to you?
