Ericsson MC 218 displaying thai characters

I know this is probably a long shot, but would anybody in here by chance know if it is possible to make the Ericsson MC218 computer display thai characters?

This minicomputer is running under "EPOC" instead of windows.

International locale support

By using Unicode as its fundamental character set, the Symbian platform is able to support worldwide locales including Japanese and Chinese, with Korean, Thai and other languages.

Text formatting and character attribute handling follow detailed Unicode consortium recommendations to meet international requirements. TrueType fonts allow large character sets to be scaled conveniently. A text input framework supports keyboard or handwriting entry of text, in large character sets.

What?s coming

The Symbian platform, Version 6.1, will ship in the first half of 2001.

Version 6.1 will deliver GPRS-based packet data, WAP 1.2, and additional Bluetooth functionality.

The first Symbian-based Smartphone, the Ericsson R380, was released in September 2000, and is based on EPOC R5u, a Unicode version of EPOC R5.

More Smartphone products, based on Generic Technology from the Symbian platform, Version 6.1, are expected from Symbian licensees during 2001.

Further Reading

Symbian owns, develops and licenses a software platform for next generation mobile phones. Owned by Ericsson, Matsushita, Motorola, Nokia and Psion, Symbian's mission is to license the Symbian platform to all mobile phone manufacturers and to create a mass market for next generation mobile phones by working closely with wireless networks, content, services, messaging and enterprise wide solution providers. See www.symbian.com for more information.

That may answer the question of "possible," but wether or not you "can" do it is still up in the air. You might also try searching EPOC at www.kde.org because I think that there is a kde front end to EPOC
