BIG APPLE: Of the two new iPhone releases yesterday, it's the iPhone mark 5C that is most interesting to Apple watchers.

Venture capitalist Fred Wilson notes that the vast majority of the world's cell users do not sign contracts with AT&T or Verizon in exchange for subsidized iPhones like we do in America, meaning that Apple may be poised to lose quite a lot of market share to Android or Microsoft/Nokia.
