Currently, the device is not listed by carriers in the US or the online Apple store.

The 16GB and 32GB iPhone 5c costs £469 and £569 respectively, but O2 lists the 8GB iPhone for £409.99 off-contract, making it £60 cheaper than the 16GB model. Additionally, the Apple Store UK also listed the 8GB model online with a price tag of £42,9 which is £20 higher than the price offered by O2.

As far as specifications are concerned, the 8GB models brings the same set of features, but with lower storage space on board. This could tempt buyers go for the iPhone 5c rather than the iPhone 4s, which is also available as a lower cost alternative from Apple.

What do you think, can this move help the company sell more iPhone 5C?
