Ascender Corp reports: [edited]

Ascender Corporation designed and engineered a new set of system User Interface (UI) fonts named "Droid" for the Android platform built by the Open Handset Alliance. The Android platform is a complete mobile phone software stack that will be made available under the Apache open source license. The fonts provided by Ascender ensure that users of handsets developed from the Android platform will enjoy highly legible text resulting in easy to use interfaces.

Brett's 2p'orth: The typefaces are clean and well-formed, if a little bland. The serif is the most interesting, looking like a hybrid of Georgia and Melior.
