    I am currently a student studying Japanese at Arizona State University, and I was considering on purchasing a Palm 700p from Sprint. My question is if the 700p offers support for asian languages such as Japanese. I type alot of my notes in excel and I would like to view them on the go. I heard alot about CJKMOS and I was wondering if that works well for the 700p.

    You say Asian languages. There is a Chinese version treo 650. see here: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?contentid=4852 . Can't say if the treo could work with a Japanese langauge version. I haven't heard anything about that. Don't know what CJKMOS is. You'd want the whole operating system to be in Japanese? That doesn't exist for sure. I do know that Sony made handhelds in Japanese, like the original sony ux 50 palm OS handheld: http://www.palminfocenter.com/view_story.asp?ID=5666 (which is not to be confused with there new windows micro pc with same name. See that one here: http://www.digitalworldtokyo.com/200...x50_handhe.php). The sharp zaurus handheld comes in a Japanese version. Pricey though. And not a phone. See here: http://dynamism.com/sl-c3000/main.shtml . That same site also offers the new sony ux 50 mirco windows pc. you could load a Japanese version of excel on there. But pricey again. More so.

    Actually, the Chinese version of the Treo 650 includes CJKOS. (Not CJKMOS) Currently the 700 series has only been released in North America. There *shouldn't* be any issue installing the CJKOS addon, as it is designed to run on any Palm OS handheld.

    For more info regarding CJKOS: http://www.dyts.com/en/products.html

    CJKOS FAQ: http://www.dyts.com/en/faq.html

    I would write to them and find out if the 700p is a supported device. If not, the Chinese version of the Treo 650 is your best bet.
