    Does anyone know if WebOS will support Asian Characters like Chinese, Japanese and Thai natively?

    It had better. It was a gigantic pain not having Unicode support on the old Palm OS (GB2312? What?). It's 2009. There's no excuse for a lack of Unicode support on any sort of modern platform. It also runs Linux underneath (no idea what variety), and that's definitely Unicode-capable.

    The other question is what sort of input methods will be available for it, what fonts will ship with it, and how easy will it be to add or change them?

    While WM supports Chinese or Japanese (or whatever), it's not easy and it doesn't come standard with the majority of phones. You either need to buy software to handle it, or mess around with all sorts of settings to make it work.

    I don't have any problem reading or forwarding what few messages I get in Japanese. I suppose that is a good sign.

    There are other threads on this. Built-in support for displaying Chinese and Japanese, at least in Unicode.

    Also, there are a couple of input apps for simplified Chinese (do a search).

    The web browser certainly does Korean. Not sure if any other program does...

    It supports all of these. No Hebrew or Arabic however, and some languages have spotty coverage (Greek letters with breathe marks). But overall, most is supported.

    Just try out FlashCards Lite in the app catalog (free). Check the language category to see all kinds of juicy goodness for Chinese, Japanese, Kanji, etc.
