Apple's iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S might have some trouble gaining traction in Russia, a new report claims. Speaking to Bloomberg in an interview on Friday, IDC analyst Simon Baker said that "if Apple really wanted to compete with Samsung in Russia, it should've come up with a much lower price for the 5C." According to Baker, Apple is selling the iPhone 5C for $800 in Russia, while the iPhone 5S retails for about $960.
