Google So, somewhere in the middle of the night (at least for me) Samsung and Google held a joint event, in which they announced both the new Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus, and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. While the Galaxy Nexus is a pretty impressive phone, what we got to see from Ice Cream Sandwich surely didn't drop too many jaws.

To be fair... I think his point was that the new font Apple introduced (not created, but started using), Helvetica Neue, is nothing more than some minor tuning to the original Helvetica font (rounded corners are a bit more round, some minor width adjustments, etc.). Likewise, Roboto is nothing more than some different minor adjustments (the curve of e and g are extended a bit etc.)

Just saying there is certainly nothing special about Roboto - it IS Helvetica, or close enough that a non-expert would not notice much difference. So it Helvetica Neue for that matter.
