I think it's a gamble if you wonder why the keyword "गाना" only gets 390 monthly google searches (exact) but it's a bargain if you have confidence that over 300 million Hindi speaking folks will eventually adopt Hindi keyboards whether through mobile phones or conventional keyboards. What I don't quite understand with Hindi is why most Hindi speakers type Romanized scripts in Hindi as opposed to using Hindi Devnagri script even when they have the option to do so, especially when their mobile phone keys could be Hindi enabled. Out of curiosity does iPhone come with Hindi keyboard by default?
