Just about a week after our very own Mike (MTPFlyers) made a video showing us what could be the new budget, lower cost, plastic iPhone, Chinese site WeiPhone unveiled a photo of a plastic box similar to the ones that house iPods. The difference here is that it’s stamped iPhone 5[C]. Unsure of what the C stands for, one could only assume it means “Colors” since we saw the new plastic shells available in white and green, rumors around the interwebs suggest the lower cost plastic budget iPhone will be available in new color options. The packaging looks much different from those we’ve seen in the past for iPhones, but with iOS getting a brand new overhaul, perhaps the boxes are too. I would assume that the box will have a clear top that rests on the lip shown in the picture and the new colored iPhone will sit behind it, showing off the color options to the consumer. The WeiPhone forums are a regular source for Apple rumors so only time will tell if this comes to fruition.

I am a Police Officer by trade, but my passion lies in he Tech World! It all started decades ago when we built our first family computer running MS-DOS. Through the years I loved all things computers, gadgets and gizmos. When Nextels were the hip thing, I was breaking them apart, changing cases, hacking into the software and adding ringtones, screensavers and more. My passion really ignited with a gift of the first iPhone. This was a follow up from my Cingular Motorola ROKR iTunes phone. I was hooked. Jailbreaking, modding and most importantly ACCESSORIZING! Soon after I got all the iPhones one by one and was able to forge relationships with companies reviewing products geared at iPhone. I've since broken the chain and added Android devices too, but my heart will always lie with Apple.
