We'd all heard the rumors—the many, many rumors—but it's finally official. Apple has just announced a new, alterna-iPhone that's coming to you in a rainbow of colors for (slightly) less money.

Just because Apple now has a mid-range phone that they're hocking for cheaper doesn't mean it's not getting the same love and attention it deserves.
