Will Nokia replace Segoe WP with Nokia Pure?

nokiawpnokiapure

Pocketnow have leaked some press shots of the upcoming Nokia 800, and Long Zheng over at Istartedsomething.com, who may know Metro better than Microsoft, noticed immediately that something was different.

It seems the mock-ups use Nokia’s Pure font rather than the Metro font Segoe WP. Nokia of course has wide freedom to make changes to Windows Phone 7, but if this only extends to fiddling with the font I don’t think there is too much to worry about.

Nokia’s Pure font is designed to be legible at small font sizes on high resolution screens and is based on the idea of seamless, fluid motion.  Does not sound like a bad match for Metro, is it?
