One of the big questions surrounding the so-called iPhone 5C has focused on how Apple plans to keep the device from cannibalizing its high-end smartphones, and the discussion's traditionally centered on speculation that the Cupertino company will limit the sale of the device to overseas markets.

As initial sales reports begin to trickle in for the hundreds of retails across the holiday from the biggest shopping weekend of the year, Apple seems poised to post some pretty big numbers according to various analysts.

We've gotten accustomed to take the words of Gene Munster, Senior Research Analyst at Piper Jaffray, with a grain or block of salt or two upon occasion.
