    The internal hardware will still be used in the 5c, and the external chassis will still be used on the 5s. So all the parts will be available.LOL

    "no one"? I bet Apple sells a ton of them. Just like every other product that they make...

    I'm sure they will sell quite a few over the long term, but I was with a friend who bought a 5c (from Best Buy) over the weekend and he was explicitly told by the sales person that his was the only one anyone in the entire store had ever sold. Same story at all the other stores we went to (he was hunting for a 5s initially) - every single store was sold out of the 5s, and had tons of the 5c, none of which were selling at all.

    A possible explanation for this would be that "launch weekend people" are early adopters who want the latest and greatest, and the 5c is definitely not that - but it will probably find plenty of success down the road with more mainstream consumers.

    Well, Apple sold over 9 million new iPhone 5C and 5S units over the weekend. Sure, a lot of those were 5S, but a lot of 5C too.

    Sure, but how many of those 5c sales were from people who actually wanted the 5s but ended up settling due to stock issues (like my friend)?
