    Official waiting up for iPhone 5c pre-orders pajama party!-iphone_5c_colors_startrek_spoof.jpg

    Of course we're doing it again! In grand Mobile Nations tradition, we're going to stay up and wait for the iPhone 5c pre-orders to start... and we're going to do it together! So get your pajamas on, grab some tasty snacks and a beverage - adult or otherwise! - and join us.

    We'll chat, we'll have fun, maybe we'll even give away some prizes!

    Mostly we'll wait for iPhone 5c pre-orders to turn on, and then we'll either let everyone else know what we got, or we'll complain about servers going down! It's really 6 and 5 and pick'em at this point!

    So, to get this party started, who's ordering what from where?

    No iPhone 5s pre-orders. My understanding is that supplies are too constrained to handle the types of pre-order numbers new iPhones typically generate. So, Apple is making them in-store only to ensure sufficient supply.

    ​If you want an iPhone 5c, you can pre-order tonight. If you want and iPhone 5s, you'll have to go to the Apple Store, or some other retailer, on Friday the 20th.

    So you're telling me if I mash them together I'll end up with a green 5c? Suppose it'd be cheaper to just buy the green one in the first place! :P

    I'm drinking a vanilla latte from Second Cup, starting West Wing Season 4, and doing some paperwork while I wait.

    Leaning towards the blue iPhone 5c. Probably only 16GB though because it'll be a secondary, mainly review device.

    Glad to see iMore carry on the awesome tradition of Virtual Pajama Parties!

    If I were getting a 5C, I would definitely get the green one. With the black 'connect four' case.

    P.S. One look at my avatar and, well, you know why...

    Excited for the 5C, but I'm REALLY excited for the 5S. Would be a nice upgrade from my iPhone 4S.

    20 Hours in America Part 2 time!

    Amazing that 14 years ago, Aaron Sorkin was already bringing up privacy as being the most important issue of the next two decades, following role of government and civil rights. Prescient.

    I test a ton of cases, which means i'm always putting them on and taking them off. I had my iPhone multi-layer anodized, though, so I'm fine without one.

    ​I have no personal preference.
