Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 today after an eternity of anticipation. Get the details on the device here.

Apple proved many of the rumors true, and among them, the release date of September 21, with pre-orders beginning Friday, September 14. Pricing is as follows: 16GB for $199, 32GB for $299, and 64GB for $399 (prices include a two-year contract).

Not everybody will be able to get the device on September 21, however. That’s just the U.S., Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the U.K.

Apple announced that it will be rolling out the device to 22 more countries on September 28, including: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

The iPhone 5 comes in either white & silver or black & slate. It will be available from the Apple Online Store, Apple’s retail stores, and through AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless and select Apple Authorized Resellers.

iOS 6 will be released on September 19.
