Hello all. My wife and I are considering upgrading to the Pre or jumping ship for the iPhone. A concern for her is being able to read email in Japanese Kanji. I understand that via the Palm Messaging Subject headers display properly but the actual message body does not display correctly.

We both use Gmail and I was curious if accessing Gmail via the web browser, enables viewing of messages written in Japanese text.

Anyone willing to give it a shot. I can send a test email message written in Japanese to see if it works. I understand that even if we can view the messages properly in the web browser that we most likely won't be able to write back in Japanese text. (Not too much of a concern as we only need to be able to read the text.)

Thanks in advance guys.

Neil

Google will translate it. Do not think it will allow you to type that font but I get messages from my family in Bangkok, Thailand all the time. They actually have google translate which will transcode/format most pages any way you want. I saw japanese there, not sure what or if it says kanji.

I don't read Thai but google (through Pre's browser) does show it.. (characters and all). I just take it to the translate page.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Johnny. Good to know Thai works. I suppose I need to go to a Sprint store and find out for myself, just curious if someone could go to gmail in the web browser and confirm an email with japanese texts displays.
