How and from where to get Hindi Fonts to read MS documents and SMS.
If you have .ttf font file (with bold preferable) then you can use font changer to change font.I used it for some weird fonts but never devnagri.Still worth a try.Else there are string of commands to change the Font totally.But that is risky and if it wont work ,factory reset would have to be done..Enjoy.
Note : You need to root the phone before dong anything.
I think Handcent sms has support for devnagri but I dont know.You should check it out.
EDIT 1: Multiling Keyboard has support for Hindi keypad.
I confirm that the method is working, tried myself personally, just give it a try and see....
yes I confirm too, I use it for some font that I need and it works.
