Everybody wants a piece of Apple’s new iPhone 5, but unfortunately not everyone can have it – yet. Aside from the already traditional supply and demand issues, some of you might have encountered an even more serious problem – the iPhone 5 is simply not available where you reside.

Thankfully, we’ve already heard the “thinnest and lightest iPhone ever” is due to hit China this month, with more than 50 other countries getting their own late launches by Christmas. Among these, we have some exotic names, like Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Grenada, Cyprus, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, Botswana and Madagascar.  The iPhone 5 is also coming to a few major countries such as South Korea, Brazil and Russia.

December 7, 14 and 21 will be the exact dates that over 50 additional countries will get the iPhone 5. The suggested retail prices bring no shockers – $199 for the 16 GB model, $299 for the 32 GB version and $399 for the 64 GB variant on contract.
