I thought that Sony consistently used Georgia, but that it was a slightly different version of Georgia than the one that comes standard with Windows.

In theory you can extract the fonts from the firmware and use them on other devices. They are TTF format. I don't know if the Kindle will use side-loaded fonts.

The Sony font names are:

Dutch801 Rm BT Roman
Courier 10 BT Roman
Swis721 BT Roman

They are copyrighted by Bitstream Inc.

The fonts on come in regular versions, no italic/bold. As I recall, the PRS650 spoofs italic and bold by munging the regular font. I guess this will not work on the Kindle, i.e., if you use the Sony font on the Kindle, you won't get bold/italic. However, all versions of these fonts (regular, bold, italic etc) are probably available on the internet.
