One way of approaching this is by asking our corporate (ie MediaWiki)
sponsors and ask them this question. When they indicate that specific models
do not work for specific languages, we can find people who can help with the
creation of additional characters for fonts. (I know just the man).
When we are going mobile, it makes sense to do that whole hog and indiicate
that on our main pages. The phone models that actually work should also be
on a prominent place ie Meta comes to mind. When we can establish that we
serve content to a mobile, we can provide the mobile skin by default. This
is however for our techies to sort out.

I have been interested in mobile mediawiki less then a week and I am
thankful to the Urdu localisers for pointing me in this direction..
- 13 more languages are now completely localised
- Swahili was completed (Africa)
- Malayalam was completed (India)
- there is now some documentation on all the aspects of Wikipedia
optimised for mobile telephone
- Mobile MediaWiki needs to get more prominence on the websites when
strategy says that it will bring us more
- The localisation is only 24 messages at this time ... it makes sense
do it for every language, particularly yours
- Something like once a week the localisations are updated I have been
So, this is an easy one... help us get more traffic, make Wikipedia
accessible in your language.
