Fonts for Mobile Browsers
Mobile devices require a set of fonts to display web pages and HTML content. Monotype is pleased to offer a variety of font sets for use in mobile devices and consumer electronics devices to display web content with the best possible user experience.
Monotype offers popular fonts licensed from Microsoft, including Arial®, Courier New, Georgia®, Times New Roman® and Verdana®. These fonts can be found in many mobile devices, including the iPhone, PalmPre and Windows Mobile phones.
The Monotype team has developed a range of premium UI fonts that are optimized for rendering on mobile device screens. The Droid family of fonts found in mobile phones with the Android OS was designed by Monotype's Steve Matteson. The hinting (tuning the quality for rendering on low resolution screens) was led by Monotype's Tom Rickner, most well known as the hinter of Georgia and Verdana.
Any devices with a web browser will require a set of fonts to display web pages. There are five font families in the CSS specification: Serif, Sans-Serif, Cursive, Fantasy and Monospace. Monotype can help recommend fonts that would work best for a device with a browser, from mobile phones to notepads and TV Set Top Boxes.
