    It is possible to read Hindi on Playbook as it supports unicode. So u can see hindi unicode fonts like mangal etc on Playbook. But I could not figure out a way for typing in Hindi on Playbook.

    Well friends I have recently discovered a way to read Hindi script i.e., Devanagari script on OS 5 Devices.

    This could be achieved by following the steps mentioned below:

    Fonts could be downloaded from the following Link
    kde-look.org/content/download.php?content=17720&id=1&tan=57685087

    The downloaded file could be extracted with the help of application like Winrar.

    Install the downloaded osho_125.ttf file with the help of a Blackberry App like “Font Control”. This app could be easily downloaded from Blackberry App World for free.

    The font can be installed without the help of the App also. Just change the extension of the file from osho_125.ttf to osho_125.font and copy paste the file into the following directory in your Backberry device.

    Device memory/ appdata/ rim/ fonts

    The directory is generally hidden, so please enable the show hidden files/ folder option, and a reboot is required.

    By following the above mentioned techniques we can install any script on our device, like gujrati, Gurumukhi (Punjabi), Bengali, etc. The font should be Unicode true type font and should be below 90 kb file size.

    I have also installed Raavi.ttf on my device for reading Gurumukhi (Punjabi) script. My device is running on OS 5.
