Nokia has continued its campaign for the conquest of the Americas. After the recent release of the handset in Chile it is now the turn for Brazil to get ready for Nokia’s Windows Phone family.

For now TIM is the only Brazilian operator to announce the registration for these handsets, which can be completed on their site here.

Samsung Omnia W on the way to Colombia, waiting to be released

wondp

It appears the Samsung Omnia W will be one of the first of the new generation of Windows Phone 7.5 handsets to head to Colombia.

We had earlier posted that  Comcel and Movistar was meant to release Windows Phone 7.5 handsets in December, but it appears that the release has been delayed into the new year, missing the important Christmas shopping season, which is of course regrettable.

The above picture was tweeted by El Yego who described it as the first Colombian Windows 7.5 phone, and according to the Warnov, a Microsoft evangelist in Bogota, the handsets are currently in the hands of the carriers, just waiting to be released.

Hopefully the handsets will be coming sooner rather, and include more than just the Omnia W.

Thanks Elmo for the tip.
