Android Global 

This is one that most of us here in the United States take for granted. Android 2.2 supports 26 languages, or variants thereof. Android 2.3 Gingerbread more than doubles that at 57. And atop the list is Arabic -- one that's been atop Google's own AOSP wish list for quite some time. So, yes, Gingerbread supports Arabic, and a whole bunch of new languages. Peep the list below.

spielnicht says:

A) Could mean Arabic input only at the moment (keyboard)
B) This is not the final release which supports these languages (including Arabic).

Definitely a move in the right direction of Google to support all these languages if they want to continue their worldwide domination.
