Improved front-facing FaceTime HD camera.
New FaceTime HD camera with larger pixels for better low-light performance, and better audio, too.
Supports "more LTE bands than any other smartphone in the world." 100Mbps download. Dual-band WiFi, too. Could this be a single phone for Apple worldwide?
100 Mbps download, 802.11 a/b/g/n
Those stat slides were very fast.
16GB priced at $99, 32GB for $199. On-contract, of course.
The cases, of which there are six, are $29.
Tim, you picked it. $99 for 16GB, 32GB $199. And a two-year contract. $29 color cases.
"We worked really hard to make sure these products are designed in a very environmentally friendly way."
Phil says they're not only toxin-free, but "Android-free" as well. Got a couple chuckles from that.
Applause when he says "Android-free." hmmph
Okay, time for Video. It's Jony Ive doing his thing.
"We believe the iPhone is an experience, and an experience is defined by hardware and software working together harmoniously."
He's talking about "dynamically blurring the boundaries" between the two.
"iPhone 5C is beautifully, unapolgetically plastic. Multiple parts have been reduced to a single polycarbonate component whose service is continuous and seamless.
So, instant thought: the cases make the design a lot cooler. Could add additional Moto X design stylings. I think a lot of people are going to want this one (the 5C).
We're seeing lots of slow plans with ridiculous macro shots, as per usual. Good luck ever getting your iPhone this clean.
How shiny will the polycarbonate stay? How scuff-free? "single piece" with steel-reinforced frame.
We're seeing the manufacturing process now, of the polycarbonate getting moulded. There's a steel frame that's actually glued in.
Holes are machined, not molded, and the whole thing is actually provided with a lacquered glosscoat.
I could see this phone being more bounce-on-the-pavement friendly.
"A solid, dense feel that you would not expect from a plastic product."
Half an hour in, pretty fast and furious pace.
Now he's talking about the "soft, matte, microfiber-lined silicon" cases, a "very intentional contrast" to the gloss iPhone.
Craig is talking now, talking up the specs. He says the battery life is "impressive" but we haven't heard any figures quoted yet.
I want to know how impressive the battery life is.
That green is as bright as the sneakers on someone I saw this morning at the omelette bar.
