We have many Russian customers and a common question is whether or not the devices we sell, typically Android units, support the Russian language. The answer is generally yes but you might have to make some changes.
Depending on the Android version a Cyrillic keyboard may be available as stock, some devices running 2.2 Froyo and above have this as an option in the settings accessed by Settings > Language & Input > Touch Input. The languages ticked from this menu will appear in the list available in the international keyboard list accessed when the soft keyboard is on screen. This generally will not affect all of the main navigation of the device.
If this option is not available or you are running Android below 2.2 then there are some free downloads that can assist in the transition. One we have used and tested here at Clove is “More Locale 2” This will add languages to the lists available and also update icon titles in some locations. More Locale 2 is also a very good option for those looking for Arabic conversions.
Another option is Russian Keyboard. This is similar to More Locale 2 however is specific to the Russian language so may take up less storage space on your device
Both applications have experienced problems running on the Droid X device from Motorola
Clove always recommend performing a back of the data on your device before installing any applications or updates that may make significant changes to its operation
