    Hi,

    I've recently migrated from Treo 650 (Palm OS) to a Treo 750 (WM5).
    Still trying to get use to Windows Mobile interface. Too long with the
    Treo 650.

    I use to have a chinese characters application called the CJK on my
    Treo 650 which served me well. Is there a similar one for the Treo 750?

    Can somebody recommend a good Chinese Character application for
    the Treo 750?

    Thanks.

    I use CE-star. When I made the transition, it was the best one out there which supported the funky *** size of the 750 display. I was waiting for monster chinese to come out with support, don't look like it's happening.

    Anyhow, CE-star works pretty well, but be warned, the fonts are hidious, esp. if you're used to the high-res fonts of cjkos.

    good Luck!

    thanks. will check it out. uh..what do you mean when you said the fonts are hidious?

    Well, it's just ugly, and personally, sometimes it's hard to read. I think it's cuz of the lower res of the 750. The words/fonts look a lot better on a pocketpc device w/ higher res.

    I see. There must be something out there better? Have you
    tried others? I sometimes received Chinese SMS so I would
    definitely need a chinese software

    None that I've found. If you do find one, let me know! Give it a try, I mean, things are legible, just not very pretty.

    I have been using CE-Star for a while too and yup.. the fonts are ugly but i really like the treo version support for the treo750 thumbpad. its great especialy if you use pinyin like me. But i have been experiencing freezing sometimes with CE-Star installed. And the alt key (for symbol) is not functioning if CE-Star is on.

    Oh, so that's why my alt doesn't work right. I always wondered what's up with that.

    Thanks!

    Agree on the part on the ugly fonts... my phone has been freezing randomly recently, suspected it is phoneAlarm but maybe it could be CE-Star then. However, my alt key works fine with CE-Star on.

    Has anyone tried Monster Chinese 5.3? Saw it on pocketgear.com.
    The specs looks good but no reviews on it. At $39.50 it is rather costly.
    No trial ver available also.

    Can somebody comment on it. If it is good then maybe can consider buying it.

    When I last checked it out, it didn't support the treo 750's screen res. Dunno about now.

    But, it seems there is now a version 6

    http://www.mactiontech.com/download/download_1.htm

    Indeed, it seems its not usable for the Treo 750. What a waste. Just when I thought I found the right one. Any other suggestions?

    I actually did install it. It will work for the 750, but because the 750 is 240x240, some of the options are off the bottom of the screen. If u can find an image of it, then u can still select them w/ the keypad. I used it, it actually works, tho version 5.3 didn't look any better than CE-star. I just downloaded version 6, I'll let u know how it goes.

    Well, CE-star'll definitly let u do that. I use it for that daily. I just prefer Monster, but u can use CE for like 30 days as trial.

    While waiting for your review on Monster 6, I guess I'll take a look at CE-Star.
    I did saw the screen of CE-Star and I too prefer Monster screen more.

    Just installed the trial ver of CE-Star 2.8R3a for the treo 750.
    The fonts look ok to me, actually not bad too. Are we lloking at
    the same CE-Star?

    Hehe.. Maybe its really not that ugly... I use a smaller fonst size than the default treo fontsize and i admit its sometimes hard to read the chinese character. I use the pinyin input method and sometimes i have to squint to pick out the right character when being presented by the choices. But the thumbpad support for the treo of CE-Star definitely makes this my personal choice.
