Apple announces the new iPhone 5c

At today's iPhone event in Cupertino, Apple has made the iPhone 5c official. The press conference is still in full swing, but the much rumored plastic backed iPhone is real. And, from a first look, it looks pretty much as we've expected it to following weeks of leaked information.

The 5c is a unibody plastic design round the back and sides. Plastic wise we're looking at a hard-coated polycarbonate. Hardware wise the iPhone 5c maintains the current 4-inch Retina Display, is powered by an A6 chip and has an 8MP iSight camera on the back. Round the front there's a FaceTime HD camera.

The iPhone 5c will also support LTE, specifically more LTE bands than "any other smartphone in the world." Cost in blue, white, green, yellow and pink will be $99 for 16GB and $199 for 32GB on a 2-year contract.

Who wants one?
