No Black iPhone 5C?

We have yet to see a black back panel leak for the 5C. Personally I think it would be a big mistake to not offer the 5C in black.

It's a mistake to create a cheaper products, tends to be a lower quality.

Because the iPod mini, iPod shuffle, iPad mini, Mac mini, MacBook Air and iPhone 3G were all low quality.

The volume buttons match the leaked images of the other colors, might be legit. The 5C here might still have that protective plastic on it, giving it that extra shine.

I think it would be a mistake to assume that we have seen all the colors available on the iPhone 5C

The Touch and Nano come in slate. I hope the 5C follows suit.

Witha plastic shell, the sky is the limit for colors. I don't see why they wouldn't release black. Then again, I don't see why you would buy lesser hardware in black, a color we have had since the 3G, either. May as well buy new old stock iPhone 5 (unless the 5C REALLY is incredibly inexpensive) or just a used unit when "everyone" is dumping theirs. Just my opinion.

Probably 5C will be produced with different colors from 5S, so no white, black and gold. IMHO

It's definitely coming in white. The leaks are real and the white model exists.

The slate model is important because currently the slate Touch is the only one with a black front bezel. The other colored Touch's feature a white front bezel. Question remains whether the colored 5C's will feature the same color front bezel or adopt the white front panels like the current Touch.

Those pictures are renders and not actual parts like Sonny has.

Right, but Touch is a single family product.
I think it's possible that Apple would drive iPhone family into 5C (colored - for younger) and 5S (classical + gold - for advanced users and business). So colors could be very different between two iphones.
On the supposition that C means Colored and not Cheap... :-)

Tell us more about the moster cables you buy and how high quality they are.

The white leaked back plate means the 5C is coming in white.

Right, because the iPhone 5C isn't still going to be twice the price of the average smartphone...

Sonny Dickson (VERY reliable source, source for most of our current leaks) has confirmed the only colors for the iPhone 5C will be white, blue, red, yellow and green

It's likely. There's a business decision behind everything...

I don't believe "no black iPhone 5C" at all, and it is a fact that Apple will not release gold iPhone 5S.
