Personalize your Device with Font Changer for Android
XDA member martino2k6 has provided Android users with a very easy tool to modify the font of their Android devices. Font Changer does exactly what its name suggests, it easily allows anyone to change the stock font of the device to anything that they want. The app is nowhere near as much of a hassle as what changing the fonts actually is. Simply drop the fonts in the application’s folder, wait for the app to recognize it, and boom!

You can find more information in the application thread.
