iPhone 5c begins to sell out, 5s online orders announced

Today pre-orders began for Apple's iPhone 5c, the phone that's set to replace the iPhone 5 in the company's stock while the iPhone 5s takes the hero spot, and they've already begun to sell out pre-orders. Though it is only one model and one color for now, it would appear that this smartphone is set to be a winner despite controversy over its specifications being so similar to last year's model.
