    Follow pre-orders for Apple’s iPhone 5C going live earlier today, shipping times for the yellow, unlocked model of the device have slipped from the expected delivery date of September 20 to “available to ship by 9/25.” This is for the 16 GB model of the device, as all of the other colors and models are currently still listed as arriving by the previously announced September 20 release date. The device is also currently listed as shipping in 1-2 weeks on Apples Hong Kong website and in Canada all models and colors are shipping between September 20 and September 24.

    The Cupertino California is currently accepting ore-orders for the new iPhone 5C in the US, UK, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany and Singapore. As of right now, Apple is still listing a delivery date of September 20 in all other launch countries for the iPhone 5C. Other than Apple there are also a number of its carriers and retail partners who are also accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 5C starting today but Apple isn’t making pre-orders available for the iPhone 5S before its release.

      People are stupid.....the price for the 5C literally makes no sense.

      All this does is prove there are lots of stupid people out there with more money than sense.

      Surely the hardware inside the 5c is pretty much identical to the current 5? And the price is what? £460? Frankly it's a fairly good spec of a phone, the polycarbonate body won't scratch like the anodised 5, better that the build quality of other plastic phones. Yes it's a little expensive but all apple gear is expensive! I don't think it makes people stupid buying it. But yellow? Oh come on, awful colour.

      On another note do you reckon the 5S will scratch like the 5?

      I think it will as it is still anodized aluminium.

      The price point if the iPhone has never been a deterrent. A good percentage of low income families have them. iPhones are desirable, plain and simple. People don't need them, they want them. And that doesn't make them stupid. I'd have bought my iPhone 5 64gb even if I'd have had to pay the full $850!

      Are you serious? Out of all of them, the YELLOW model sells out first?

      I hope thats just because they made less of the yellow and not because tons of people will have that ugly-*** yellow phone. Any of the other colors is like 100x better.

      Well, my dad is all about yellow, it's his favorite color... And the really bright colors like yellow and orange are really in now. (If they had an orange one, I'd probably buy it

      There are some videos online doing that test already with the back case, apparently diffrerent from iPhone 5 the anodised frame on iPhone 5S is not chrome inside with a color coverture, it is all mass the same color so if something scratch it it will stay the same color. Google it.

      That sounds better coz my black slate i5 right now is full of white spots on the side and edges and faded on the bottom.

      Can't believe that idiot in the video was purposely scratching his own devices. Insane

      I'm surprised by the amount of people that don't just install the Zagg invisible shields. I have been doing that for every iPhone I have owned since the 3G. Apple store employees or best buy employees will install them for you even!

      ZAGG InvisiShield HD is the best. A must-have for an iPhone.

      With the iPhone 5 even with a Zagg invisible shield it shows with the time little scratches in the frame, I put it on it the same day brand new and when I took it out, I found some chrome scraches in the frame.

      Yes - the frame is a bit more susceptible to scratching even with the Zagg shield. But every time I take my last phone back to BestBuy for a 'trade in' - I get MAXIMUM value. So it looks perfect to them.

      Very true, I sold my iPhone 5 Friday on eBay for $435 with one very little chrome scratch in the uper right corner frame, just one, thanks to the cover.
