I have been behind this cause, to read Malayalam in my Samsung Galaxy having Android 2.0. I browsed over net to find some solution to this and those I found here @ J4V was slightly difficult for me to follow. On casual talk with my friend, I got the clue to use Opera Mini to resolve this problem. She was using OM in her Nokia. Well i thought I will give a try on OM. All i was doubt was if it is available in Android Market. Fortunately it was.

Now, here we go:

1. Search for Opera Mini in Android Market

2. Install it.

3. Open the browser.

4. Go to config by typing – config: – at address bar, without the hyphen. Remember that a column ‘:’ follows config.

5. Press enter or OK

6. Go to the option “Use bitmap fonts for complex scripts” (Mostly the last option in config)

7. Select “Yes”

8. Save it.

Now you can read Malayalam on your android.
