Et Tu, Verdana?

Why the heck do product designers totally fink out when it comes to fonts on a device? Case in point, this newly announced HTC Polaris. It’s super charged with all sorts of gadget-head fancyness and uses VERDANA as the device font. WHAT?! Have the decency to either commission a new font for the device or pick one that isn’t horridly commonplace. Verdana makes the word “overused” sound trite.

You would have preferred Arial perhaps? (ducking… running…)

I would have taken snow peeing over Verdana.
