Monotype has announced that its FlipFont mobile font download application will be included in a range of mobile devices from Samsung that are expected to ship in 2010. Samsung’s Galaxy S, introduced last month at CTIA Wireless 2010, is the first product to feature FlipFont as an embedded application and provide users with the ability to enhance their mobile experience with fonts.

Samsung’s Galaxy S also represents the first mobile phone ever to integrate FlipFont as a built-in application. In addition, the device becomes the first FlipFont-supported phone based on the Android mobile platform.

Monotype Imaging’s FlipFont application provides the ability to preview, select, license and download type from an online selection of mobile-optimized fonts from Monotype Imaging’s renowned Monotype, Linotype and ITC typeface collections. Users activate downloaded fonts for use on supported phones, enabling the display of menus and various applications in the chosen font. Users of supported Android-powered mobile phones from Samsung will have direct access to a selection of mobile-optimized fonts through Google’s Android Marketplace.

“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.

“Samsung’s track record for innovation extends into the company’s recognition that fonts can serve as a reflection of the individual user’s personality,” said John Seguin, executive vice president of Monotype Imaging. “With its commitment to taking the world in imaginative new directions, it’s fitting that Samsung has taken a leadership position to endorse font downloading and bring FlipFont to the Android environment. Together we’re focused on enabling more Samsung customers to enhance their phones with fonts.”
