Nokia suggests that Apple’s colorful iPhone 5C imitates its Lumia range

Last night, Apple has finally announced the cheap iPhone 5C, alongside the iPhone 5S (which is obviously its new high-end handset).

Unusually for an iPhone, the 5C comes in blue, green, yellow, pink and white – that’s a total of five distinct color versions. If this new approach looks familiar, it’s because Nokia has been releasing Lumia Windows Phone devices in relatively similar colors for a few years now.

Nokia itself noticed the resemblance, and tweeted a photo of its Lumias next to a “Thanks, Apple” and an “Imitation is the best form of flattery.”

No, Nokia did not invent any color, but it did apply some of them on smartphones in a way that no one had done before. So its tweet is somehow justified.

In the US, the new iPhone 5C will have prices starting at $99.99 on contract (16GB version). It will be available on September 20. Specs-wise, the iPhone 5C is nearly identical to the iPhone 5 from last year.
