Yes, the Arabic keyboard layout works, but you have to install a
package like so:

  opkg install

However, when writing an SMS the letters don't connect with each other
(as is standard with the Arabic alphabet).  This might just be a
problem with the way my Freerunner displays fonts.  The SMS you send
will probably look fine on your friend's telephone.

There is a Persian keyboard layout listed at:

but the link is broken.  Hopefully someone else on this mailing list
will know where it can be found.
