Apple releases 8GB iPhone 5c in select markets

iPhone 5c 8GB

Apple has released an 8 GB version of the iPhone 5c. The new lower-capacity model will only be sold in select markets where LTE is just now coming to fruition as an entry-level device (since the iPhone 4s only supports 3G.)

"The mid-tier iPhone segment is growing year-over-year and the 8GB model provides a more affordable option for markets where LTE is becoming more established," an Apple representative told Re/code.

Apple's Online Stores in  the UK, France, Germany, China, and Australia are the only territories selling the 8 GB iPhone 5c. In Europe, the cost is £429 for an unlocked model, available in all the same colors as the larger-capacity models. To be honest, this one has us scratching our heads a bit--8GB of storage on a phone that takes 8-megapixel images and high definition video is absolutely nothing. If Apple has it planned for the entry-level buyers, then the price should be less than it is.
