No word on US launch just yet, but it is expected

Just yesterday, reports were circulating that Apple would be rolling out an 8GB version of the iPhone 5C smartphone. Those reports have proven to be true with the new 8GB version of the iPhone 5C landing in China and Europe.
 
Carriers across Europe are currently taking orders for the 8GB iPhone 5C. UK carrier O2 and French carrier SFR are said to be offering the device for free on contract.
 
The 8GB version of the phone is available directly from the Apple Store as well with an unlocked version selling for £429 making it £40 cheaper than the 16GB version of the smartphone.
 
The new 8GB iPhone 5C is available in multiple colors and other than having less storage; the device has the same exact hardware found in other iPhone 5C versions. It's unclear at this point if the iPhone 4S will be discontinued now that the 8GB 5C is available -- as of now the iPhone 4S is still on carrier websites.
 
The 8GB iPhone 5C has yet to make an appearance in the U.S.

Seems a little small...

With no practical way to add storage what exactly is someone going to do with an 8GB iPhone? My wife got a new 16GB last week (btw thanks a lot Samsung for effing up the GS3 4.3 update so bad that I bought it just to get 5 minutes of peace), and already 7GB are used just loading some basic apps and a couple games. This is her first iOS device, so she doesn't have a bunch of stuff importing.

I just don't see people being very happy with that small space given the size of modern apps.

You see, they sell you the 8GB one which you like but the lack of storage frustrates you into buying a 32GB iPhone 5S.

Sounds like a PICNIC, my update to 4.3 went smooth.

You do realize that your claim about "size of modern apps" is nonsense, at least on iOS?
I have 133 apps on my iPhone5, and they take up 4.35 GB of storage.

Apps are getting larger on the average. As apps development matures, apps are getting larger with more functionality. Not talking about little games, but productivity apps are getting pretty large.
