Samsung Galaxy S to Offer Font Downloads via Monotype’s FlipFont

It was announced earlier today that the Samsung Galaxy S will be the first mobile phone to come preloaded with Monotype Imaging’s FlipFont application.  Expected to ship later this summer, the Galaxy S will present users  with the ability customize and enhance their user experience by downloading mobile-optimized fonts.  Once installed, the fonts will change the display of menus and various apps.  Users will then also have access to a selection of mobile-optimized fonts through the Android Market.

“I believe that our customers will benefit from the ability to tap into a wide range of distinctive fonts right from their mobile phone. FlipFont offers unique value that enhances the mobile user experience,” said Dr. Hankil Yoon, vice president of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business.

    Summer? So its not out this month? Then my choice is made. HTC desire all the way. No point in waiting for a phone that has no flash anyway.
