iPhone 5 is currently available in 47 countries around the world including the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and the UK. iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features including: Shared Photo Streams, Facebook integration, all-new Maps app, Passbook® organization and even more Siri® features and languages.

iPhone 5 comes in either black & slate or white & silver.

Costa Rica’s authorized Apple dealer, iCon, confirmed to QCostarica that in addition to the iPhone, on sale will also be the iPad Mini and iPad Retina (or iPad 4).

The iPad Retina replaces the discontinued iPad 3 which was introduced earlier this year.

Consumers in Costa Rica have be we careful when buying the “new” iPad, mistaking the 3 for the Retina or 4.

At iCon, the staff know the difference and do not have the iPad3 in stock, offering consumers only the iPad2. However, a check of other retail stores, QCostarica found that there is plenty of iPad3 stock. The labeling says “NEW” iPad, the correct labeling for the product, however, at one store (name is being withheld intentionally) the store employee could not say if it was the 3 or the 4 (clearly the 3) or that a 4 even existed.

iCo would not say what price the new Apple products will have, though we can expect that it will be between 2 to 3 times the price in the US, the typical practice for Apple products pricing.
