The normal, big font on the iPod is Chicago (nice, retro look there) but the
small font on the contact screen is definitely _not_ Chicago. It sure does
look a bit like Espy, but it isn't. The key give-away is the letter "p." The
Espy "p" is very distinct. This font is lacking it, as well as the long
tails on the small "t" and "j." I don't know what it is, but it isn't Espy.
Actually, it looks like a proportional-spaced Monaco. Is this possible? Has
anybody ever seen a proportional Monaco? That is what this font reminds me
