Palm Pre's Fonts Custom Designed By Font Bureau Type Foundry

The large, incredibly readable font on the Pre is part of why we said the OS was so usable in our review, but we just thought it was a nice choice of fonts; we didn't know Palm commissioned it themselves.

The company responsible for the font—Font Bureau—makes custom designs for "publications and corporations". This particular one is called Prelude, and has a similar sibling that Palm uses for the ads.

And if you're really a font fan, you'll want to check out that font fight video we posted a while back. [Typophile via Engadget]
