Abstract

Increased usage of pagers worldwide has resulted in many ideographic pagers being developed for mar- kets such as China, Korea and Vietnam. Generally, such pagers are developed independently for each market and substantial effort is required to modify existing ideographic pagers to suit a new market. At times, different languages have different character sizes which complicates it further. It would be more desirable ifa common pager software can be adapted to suit new market by simply changing values stored in the pager's EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory).
