    I use Arabic much more than I do English, and was wondering if there was a way to create an Arabic Virtual Keyboard much like the one released in the patches section of Preware.
    If possible, would anyone be able to do it?

    I wish it supported Arabic at all. Whenever my friends post Arabic on facebook it just shows up blank. It's not something I use very often but it would be nice to have every once in a while.

    Is it possible to use unicode support for the arabic language or does it already use unicode charactersets? At one time, I owned a WM6 device, and I arabized it through unicode...

    I highly doubt Arabic is supported at all. So unfortunately there's no 'normal' support let alone virtual keyboard. It probably is possible but i would imagine that would be a significant mod.

    Pre Languages;

    -Deutsh
    -English
    -Espanol
    -Francais
    -Italiano

    My Home Keyboard works with Hebrew & Cyrillic, so Arabic is possible. It is available in the Palm official feed. You will have to install Arabic font.

    sad but true,, Arabic is hard to get on the Pre, which is disappointing.

    lets offer a reward to do it, i'm up for it.

    I am willing to pay for an integrated app that will act as a virtual keyboard giving me arabic support

    after installing the arabic fonts it's only a matter of key-codes.

    yes, I've been wanting arabic support also. I'm trying to learn the language and would love it if all the translation apps included english-arabic.

    PAAAALLMM! Release the arabic pre!

    This is GENIUS, but does it function?
