Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Costa Rica is getting TECHIE

It is another great day in Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste Costa Rica!! Even though I am in the US for a few short days

I was scouring the local paper and came across this article below about the New IPhone 5. I just recently came to the 21st centuey myself with getting the 4S model. Now I have to be honest as I always try to be, when I came here 5 years ago, the internet would go out every day, the power would do the same and the attitude was “ oh well it is Costa Rica” what do you expect from an emerging country. Well things have progressed very well in the past 5 years, I was amazed this past weekend when I was on a dirt mountain road taking a short cut in the middle of nowhere and my cell phone rang. I was totally shocked. It was pretty clear connection. I pulled over the car like all ticos do, well not really pulled over I just stopped in the middle of road, but what the heck it was in the middle of nowhere so no one was coming in either direction. My caller made me aware of an email they just sent me, so I took a look and low and be hold I was getting my emails as well.

“Apple announced Monday that the iPhone 5 will be available in Costa Rica starting Dec. 14. The company posted on its website availability dates for the new line of smartphones in more than 50 countries. The iPhone 5 hit the market on Sept. 12 and is currently distributed in 47 countries. Costa Rican cellphone operators (Claro, Movistar and ICE) have not disclosed any information on service plans, but the device already has the certification of approval by the Telecommunications Superintendent Agency (SUTEL).”

I also read recently that the telecommunication technology of 4G service would be making its way to Costa Rica as well, it is anticipated to be up and running sometime in early 2013. We will see how long it really takes!
