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.

it IS Helvetica

I don't understand why Helvetica is treated as the big bang or primogenitor of sans serif fonts, it's not like it doesn't have precursors http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grotesque_%28typeface%29

Yeah... Especially Akzidenz Grotesk (1896) is almost 1:1 with Helvetica. Surely not more or less so than Robota is to Helvetica.
