Also, some Samsung phones [my mums Beat] displays Hindi text, but in a manner which I guess we can call 'broken' output.. The letters get spaced out and matras don't appear or appear as separate entities. Most Motorola phones support Devnagari, but in Samsung, Motorola and BlackBerrys non-devnagari indic support is VERY POOR. BlackBerry 8700 series are one step ahead n don't display indic text AT ALL. Just boxes...

This is all based on my general understanding of the mobile technologies.

 It is the closed source vendors who have to be coaxed to make indic
languages rendering work properly.

Android does not support Indic fully yet. Locales are missing. No fonts, input either. The text shows up as boxes.
A custom ROM is a big problem for normal user.
