Posted by at 12:37 pm on August 5, 2009

Monotype Imaging has enhanced its FlipFont   mobile font download solution to support the Nokia   5800 XpressMusic   and N97 phones, and the Samsung Omnia   HD i8910   model. The three touchscreen phones, in addition to the Nokia E52 , E63   and E65 -NG models, bring the total number of FlipFont supported handset brands to 52.

Additionally, 10 mobile-optimized fonts have been added to the FlipFont collection, enabling users to choose from a total of 29 fonts to personalize the look of their phone’s user interface, menus and various applications. The full collection is available directly from supported phones through Monotype Imaging’s mobile e-commerce site, http://www.flipfont.mobi.

The new capabilities are the latest in a series of FlipFont evolutions, aimed at allowing more mobile consumers across the globe to use a growing selection of fonts. In June, Monotype Imaging expanded FlipFont availability to Europe and the Americas through direct access on supported phones from FlipFont.mobi. Prior to that, the product was available in the UK, first through Vodafone UK and its Vodafone Live!   multimedia portal, followed by mobile operator 3 UK, which allows users to access FlipFont from the 3 UK personalization homepage.

“Once again, we’ve taken a significant step in advancing FlipFont to reach more users while also enhancing our palette of mobile typefaces,” said John Seguin, executive vice president of Monotype Imaging. “FlipFont allows consumers to use fonts that are simply fun to use. Our plan is to continue to add device support and introduce an ongoing stream of new fonts.”
