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.

What do you get if you combine a great outerwear manufacturer with a great smartphone manufacturer? (A really comfortable black slab?) You get Team Columbia-HTC. Owned by High-Road Sports, Team CHTC is prepped for the Tour de France, which begins on Saturday in, er, (Monaco) and ends, er, in France. We'll get a look at the team jersey on Friday.

Said HTC CEO Peter Chou:

"The HTC High Road Sports partnership is a great match of like minded organizations driven by innovation, excellence and competitiveness and we are excited about the opportunity to communicate HTC's brand value through the great sport of cycling. HTC's sponsorship of Team Columbia-HTC is one step in HTC's commitment to increasing its global brand value and recognition."

So, expect to a bunch of HTC logos zooming around on two wheels in the coming weeks.

Thanks, Luke, for the tip!
