I have worked on the Indic fonts and came with one font which support most of the Indian languages which includes Hindi(Devanagari), Kannada, Bengali, Oriya, Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil, Punjabi.

Find the Attached Zip containing DroidSansFallback.ttf, Replace your device's DroidSansFallback.ttf font with this.

Rooted Phone needed.


Note: Android still doesn't support them officially and don't include conjugate processing. Because of which the character rendering is not perfect, but readable.
Like "ಕ ನ್ನ ಡ" is rendered as "ಕ ನ್ ನ ಡ".
check the attachment for example

----------------------------------------------------------------
From 4.0 ICS, its very easy to add fonts

just push you font in /system/fonts folder
edit /etc/fallback-fonts.xml
add an xml node of your font.
restart

Dear Sridham..
Just one question, what is the original use of DroidSansFallback.ttf ??
Secondly, Galaxy S recent Froyo Update (DDJP6 ROM Supports Hindi, both on facebook and web pages). The font name is Droidhindi.ttf found in system\font directory.

Regards

Yes, There is a method to do it.

You can use the same font, remap the SystemFont (Tahoma) to this font using regedit.

Sorry this is an Andriod thread. I will post a method in some windows thread shortly.

Any new development in this issue? I have googled infinitely and posted querry on xda forum. But no reply.
The Samsung and HTC must surely have solution. How can they not release the Hindi/Devenagarik language as open source. Its irony that open source platform like Android is stuck in language issue, while I thougth there are millions of Hindi speaking people around the world.
