Typography

Slate Pro is the recommended font for the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha because it is elegant and legible, allowing users to access information quickly and easily.

BlackBerry 10 uses four font weights (medium, regular, light, and light italic) and five font sizes (point size 5, 6, 8, 11, and 14). The leading is set to 20% greater than the font size.

In most cases, use the following font weights and sizes:
