Actually though installing Sinhala (and Tamil?) fonts requires 'rooting' your android (which has to be using the new Froyo - 2.2 OS), there's a way to view Sinhala and Tamil webpages (albeit with some unresolved issues) in the Opera browser using the config setting described in this (http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Android%20Market/thread?tid=11a50390b5f5d862&hl=en) and several other threads (search for opera config for Tamil unicode or something).

Please read Kalinga's note in red in case you want to try rooting your android: http://sinhala.kalingasblog.com/2010/07/25/sinhala-unicode-on-android-google-nexus-one/
