Something has been on my mind and I'd welcome your views on it. The general talk seems to be, Apple will make metal Iphones as normal, perhaps with a higher spec champagne model and they will be the top end/latest spec model. (iPhone 5s or iPhone 6) Then there will be the scratch resistant plastic cased model in say 5 bright colours (smooth rounded edges) but this will house a lower spec version of the iPhone and will be cheaper That seems to be the current view of what's going to happen. BUT.... Is there not a problem and might we all be wrong? What if a lot of consumers actually (whilst not wanting to admit it, and lets face it may well be into looks and fashion) actually prefer the smoother more comfortable to hold and bright coloured model? What if they want the latest iPhone but also want the nice new colour option? Apple WILL show off how damage resistant the new phone is, and we all know how damage prone the Aluminium models are, needing a case etc. Apple are not dumb (well that's open to debate sometimes on some issues) So. Do you think this has crossed their mind that they MAY be producing a product that MAY get a demand higher than they anticipate and in reality and away from forums, people are not so anal about metal is great, plastic is junk. Might we be wrong here? Might Apple be offering the Plastic colorful option as an OPTION to the range of iPhones? There will be the very latest iPhone in Plastic as well as Aluminium so people who want the best model can have it with the colour, smooth to hold case also. This 5c will not only be the cheaper version, it will be an alternative version to all the specc'd models. Apple won't want people wanting the colour over the tech and this could happen. Everyone here always says the specs are not important to average people. So perhaps the colours and lack of case needed will be more important to many people than having the latest specs. If you were in charge at Apple would you not consider this, and think. "You know what, we may have a winner here, people may love it. We better make sure out customers can buy any model iPhone, with the new case material. We don't want the cheaper model destroying the aluminium model for the average consumer" Do you think this could be the case? Everyone is wrong and the iPhone Colour will not only be a cheap one, but an across the range case option for those who prefer it?
