crosspost from http://rextang.net/blogs/work/
I was started my new work and life at Tokyo, Japan for already 1 week. Still in the status of processing my working VISA here therefore I can not acquire a cellphone or ADSL line yet, and still trying hard to find my own apartment inside this fascinating, crowded and expensive tokyo city. little bit tough, but it’s fun!
I bought the so-called HTC Universal cellphone at October 2005, which in Taiwan we called this cellphone Dopod 900. It’s already loaded Windows Mobile 5 Chinese Version . since I am now living at Japan, I’ll need the capabilities of inputing and displaying Japanese.
Great thanks to those people who put the efforts of developing this Japanese IME also tell people how to install it in HTC Universal. I’ll just document here for notice about the process.
The original installation process was found in this forum thread. Carrie O’Kaye had a good summary of the installation steps and file locations to download necessary files. as I document here for a backup resource:
1. Download from SunMar’s site. http://www.suninet.org/japinput/
2. Install “MS-Gothic Font for WM5” from Desktop Computer.
3. Install “Asian NLS for WM5” from Desktop Computer.
4. Download (but do not install yet) “Bagoj’s IME for WM5”.
5. Download and unpack from Bagoj. http://bagoj.info2k1.hu/downloads/pp…e/qvgasips.zip
6. Install “Bagoj’s IME for WM5” from Desktop Computer, but BEFORE restarting the Pocket PC, copy the contents of qvgasips (Step 5) into the PocketPC’s Windows directory. Then, soft-reboot the Pocket PC.
How to avoid the unwanted appearance of the IME floater
1. Download, unzip and copy GWinter’s KbdSwitch to Program Files. http://www.geocities.com/grieg_winte…are/index.html
2. Run KbdSwitch and set to Japanese IME.
4. As soon the Pocket PC starts up again, the IME should be in Japanese. Sometimes, it is not and so you may need to reset KbdSwitch to Japanese IME and restart a few times.
5. Run any application that may use the Japanese IME, i.e. dictionary and wordprocessor.
6. Switch back to English IME (COMP IME).
NB: The floater should only appear only in applications that you started with Japanese IME on. Also, remember that the “X” in the upper right corner of the windows is actually a “minimize” function.

Many many thanks to Asukal!!!!!! and Bagoj!
Me too!!! Many many thanks to Asukal and Bagoj!!!
It’s actually little bit different on the process of installing Japanese IME in a Chinese enabled HTC Universal (Dopod 900). I’ll post my steps here to help people who also have a Dopod 900 and like to have Japanese input and font display. (actually it’s simpler)
1. Install Chinese/Japanese/Korean Font file (WM5 ONLY): http://www.asukal.jp/WM5/echinaNO5.zip
2. Install “Bagoj’s IME for WM5” from SunMar’s site. http://www.suninet.org/japinput/
3. BEFORE restarting the Pocket PC, copy the contents of qvgasips (http://bagoj.info2k1.hu/downloads/pp…e/qvgasips.zip) into the PocketPC’s Windows directory. Then, soft-reboot the Pocket PC.
4. Soft-Reset, done!
Above steps worked in my Dopod 900 phone. The floating IME window do multiple when open new process. so just follow above links of description to stop that, then it should be ok starting to use Japanese IME in HTC Universal (Dopod 900)! thanks again to Asukal and Bagoj, you are the men!!!
I’ve tried HTC Universal (Dopod 900) in Japan by putting Vodafone‘s SIM card and proved working (it’s same system as in Taiwan, UMTS / WCDMA), so that means I can just acquire a Vodafone number and start to use Dopod 900 here at Tokyo because now my Dopod 900 is reading Japanese! well, that’s good and save money for buying a new cellphone. but, Japan’s cellphones are really good and have nice functions and tightly integrated to mobile service sites created by telecom companies. it’s hard to resist to buy a cellphone here, haha!
