Nokia Windows Phones to use “Pure” Font

Advertisement

After Long Zheng saw those first press-shots of the Nokia 800 Windows Phone that is expected to be announced next week, he noticed that the images are using Nokia’s “Pure” font style for the text as opposed to Microsoft’s usual Segoe font originally designed for Windows Phone. As we know, Nokia has special privileges when it comes to modifying the Windows Phone operating system due to their deal with Microsoft. Changing the font to something more in tune with Nokia’s branding is a subtle way to really differentiate Nokia’s Windows Phones without fragmenting or deterioriating the Windows Phone design too much.

Who’s looking forward to seeing some other ways that Nokia may have differentiated Windows Phone for their devices?
