    I'd like to know, too. So much wasted space with these huge fonts at this resolution.

    It is possible, however I've yet to get it working (completely). I have been using Type Fresh, since it seems like the easiest way. The first time I changed the fonts and rebooted, it worked okay. I decided to change them again, but this time when it rebooted it never got past the white "htc EVO 4G" screen. I wiped my device and cache, re-flashed the ROM and tried again, it froze again when rebooting. I'm too tired to continue on tonight, but I'll keep trying tomorrow after I make a new nandroid backup.

    Using Fresh 0.5.3

    Font installer app is the way to go. Install it and it will list more than 200 fonts for you to choose from. Just select and install the font you want and you are all set - How to Change Android Font
