Apple to release an 8GB iPhone 5C model?

Honestly, between the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, I prefer the 5C. Why, I’m okay with my iPhone 4 right now so if I decide to finally upgrade, I could just get the next cheaper model. I don’t know which of the two new models are selling more today but I’m guessing more iPhone 5Cs because of the price. But unless Apple releases an official sales report and shares with us the figures, we can only guess.

Rumor has it that there are still three million units in the inventory. That’s a lot of iPhone 5Cs which could mean Apple isn’t selling as expected. So is this why mobile carriers are lowering the price of the 8GB iPhone 5C? Nothing has been announced yet but a document from German carrier O2 was leaked recently, saying an 8GB iPhone 5C will be released. If the 16GB model isn’t affordable enough, the 8GB might become a bestseller.

The 8GB iPhone 5C is believed to be released later today. I can imagine the Apple phone selling fast, flying off the shelves. If true, then it will be a very interesting development in the story. Apple almost giving away a cheap, low-end iPhone 5C? This will bring the iPhone to more people than ever. The competition is quite getting stiff.
