The smartest thing the Android team ever did

The smartest thing the Android team ever did

Looking at the screenshots of the forthcoming release of Android, I can’t help but notice one thing.

The typography.

More than anything, what draws my eye and makes it clear that I’m looking at an Android screen, not an iPhone, is the beautifully designed, decidedly not-Helvetica, typeface.

Here’s hoping the Android experience starts to catch up, and surpass, Apple’s. Nothing would make me happier than choosing an Android-based phone next time I want to upgrade.
