Read and Compose in Japanese on your Blackberry

Namimail for Blackberry
One of the reasons why the Blackberry devices hasn’t made much of a dent in Japan is due to the difficulty of reading and composing emails in Japanese on the device. Most people that need access to their email on the go still need to lug around their notebooks or would just settle to using text-messaging. The old solution of reading and writing Japanese was way too archaic, characters were actual images strung together and composing involved writing using Roman characters (GENKI) and then translating to either haranga or kenji.

Namimail is trying to make things easier, utilizing an extensive character dictionary in conjunction with a character conversion engine, Namimail allows for smooth Japanese character input. BlackBerry users previously having trouble reading Japanese emails can now utilize Namimail to read and write their Japanese e-mails, leading to productive BlackBerry use while on the go.

Namimail service is available through most US carriers, including Cingular, Sprint, Nextel, and Verizon. Most QWERTY Blackberry models are supported.
