Android 1.5 did not support Indic rendering at all. AFAIK, this problem
continued until 2.0.

Android 2.1 does not support web fonts and Indic fonts are not shipped with
any device I know of.

Android 2.2 does support web fonts and indic rendering, but doesn't ship
with fonts either. Here's a quick test page for anyone who wants to check
from their phone:
