Windows Phone coming to Colombia in December

We know Brazil is ready for Windows Phone, so it only makes sense that Colombia get some love too. And according to Jorge Silva Luján, Microsoft Colombia GM, Windows Phone is heading there in December. So was the news conveyed to by him over all things, Twitter, a few days ago.

"Windos Phone en Colombia. Diciembre!! Las personas son el centro,no los iconos ni las aplicaciones. Como tiene que ser. Listos?"

"Windows Phone: People at the center, not apps or icons. They way it should have always been. Colombia available in December. Are you ready?"

From later tweets, he reveals that the carriers Comcel and Movistar will be getting the devices and that both are involved in the approval process at this point. While it's not clear which phone or phones will be available, it looks like the Samsung Focus may be one of them.

Nice news. WP7 is finally coming south of the border.PS.: I'm Brazilian but I know how upset my fellows Colombians become when someone calls their country as Columbia instead of Colombia. Just a tip. ;)

uyyy buenisimo. Movistar is also in Peru, hopefully they take advantage of their new hate for blackberries. It has suddenly become cool to make fun of BB in south America.

Great news! Buenas noticias para los hermanos Colombianos.I have my unlocked LG E900 but would really like to finally have local support here in Venezuela!
