Although China is really big part of the world and should be definitely 
supported N770 _is_ multilingual and it _does_ contain non-english 
fonts. I am from Czech Republic and N770 was big surprise for me because 
czech fonts are on the device and czech characters do display correctly 
on all czech pages I've seen so far (so I suppose all 3 encodings 
cp1250,iso 8859-2 and utf-8 used for czech are recognized and 
supported). This is still not normal on many recent linux desktop 
distributions so Nokia definitely did better than the average. Of course 
this will not help you but I wouldn't say it is english only device.
