Which BB model supports japanese language?

hi. I want to enter the BB world.

I need my phone to be able to write/read in both japanese and english.

Also, it should be 3G/UMTS, so I will be able to use it in Japan AND in Europe.

 

As cheap as possibile :-)

 

I'd very much appreciate your help.

Re: Which BB model supports japanese language?

thank you very, very much for your answer!

 

And this will work with Curve 3g 9300?

And all other BB models?

Re: Which BB model supports japanese language?

I have the Bold 9900 and it supports reading Japanese if I install the Japanese language pack, and it works in both Europe and Asia. If I had the Japanese keyboard it would support Japanese input aswell. Japanese input can be installed, but it is very difficult to use without the proper keyboard. I think this goes for nearly all newer devices.

Good luck finding one that suites you, I'm sure that you'll love it!!

Thank you habbitz.
When you write "if I had the japanese keyboard" you mean the physical japanese keyboard?

Re: Which BB model supports japanese language?

Sorry for being unclear. Yes I mean the physical factory keyboard with japanese signs. Very difficult to know where the different signs are, its not like it follows the same pattern/rules as the roman alphabet... Not that I know japanese, which makes it completely hopeless for me...

But if you want a device that has keyboard with japanese characters you should buy it either in Japan or on the net.

Or the mobile phone mall in Bangkok, they got stolen phones from all around the world! Smiley Tongue

Re: Which BB model supports japanese language?

I'd like to thank you all very very much.

The phone arrived today, we followed instructions, and it all worked out perfectly.

We can read english and japanese fonts, and we can type english and japanese.
And the japanese input system is very good. Impressive work!
