For those who want to pre-order the iPhone 5C, RadioShack Corporation (NYSE:RSH) will start taking orders on Friday. All five colors will be available for pre-order, although only three carriers will accept orders, and T-Mobile USA, Inc. (TMUS) isn’t on the list. These pre-orders will be available in-store.

Apple iPhone 5C

Last year, RadioShack Corporation (NYSE:RSH) offered pre-orders for the iPhone 5. And it isn’t the only store to start offering pre-orders early. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) is also offering the iPhone 5C on contract for just $79, shaving $20 off the original price. Looks like it’s about to kick off a busy shopping season.

iPhone 5c color feature

The Guardian recently shared their two cents on the cheap iPhone 5C, saying, “Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s main feature for the iPhone 5C is colour. For the first time since the iPhone 4, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has produced a phone with a seamless, smooth plastic back. The rear shell is available in five colours: green, yellow, blue, white and pink.  The iPhone 5C also comes with special wallpaper that matches the chosen colour on the back of the device, and combines with a very colourful, newly redesigned iOS 7 – Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s latest mobile operating system.”

The iPhone 5C is still a relative bargain for an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) product, especially if you can get it for its advertised price.

iPhone 5S availability

For those who want to purchase the iPhone 5S, interested buyers will have to wait until September 20th for the phone to arrive. There will be no pre-orders for this model, which means those who want this particular model may want to get in line a bit early to ensure they can get their hands on the phone the day it arrives. The iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are sure to increase sales for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), which will hopefully put them back in the lead. Since the Samsung Galaxy S4 left many in disappointment, the ball is back in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s court.
