Arjuna,

This is good. Thanks for this. .

Hope the devide will be devoid of all rendering issues especially for the
languages like Oriya.

I have few suggestions

   1. Support for languages like Assamese/Punjabi is very much required.
   2. The inscript keyboard option should be there for all the languages.
   3. Let the user select the language name first, the keyboad option can be
   given (phonetic/inscript) in the next screen.
   4. A better user interface can be provided for the homepage.


Hope soon someone will develop a device for this. Supporting all the Indian
language scripts without any rendering issues will be a challenge. May be we
may need to try the web font embedding technology.


Shiju
