N900 with Punjabi support….

I got N900 for Testing Punjabi on it.
While need to install fonts, I was not
clear about rendering after installing
fonts. it is based on Maemo Linux, so
you can install/use application easily

After install openssl-client/server,
scp lohit-punjabi fonts from fedora
machine to N900 and ‘fc-cache’,
run ‘fennec’.

While after reboot, I can see the
Punjabi in mail and other places
(no interface translation available yet).
Most Important thing was Rendering,
which is just working and good enough
to use. fonts was installed on N810, but
there is Punjabi Rendering was broken


More Screenshot you can check here

from i18n Point of view, following task with status:

-Fonts- Working – Need to package
-Rendering – Working – Nothing to Done
-Input – Need to Work – Need to Package

Now Android:
No Indian Language is supported as such, but

got a chance to check Samsung Galaxy Spica

It has Hindi Interface, but Rendering broken.
Same as Apple iPhone.

Now it seems Nokia should work fast, but less
hard to provide Indian language as Rendering is
working and just installing fonts can
help to enable support.
