Just got my new Sony Ericsson Neo V today. Has inbuilt support for
Devanagari/Bengali rendering. Perhaps they are processing through each
Indic block in order! Hoping that future FOTA updates will add support
for other Indic scripts (especially Tamil) too. No built-in Indic
(even Devanagari) input methods though...
