It's possible with the right software.  Simply take a picture with your cameraphone, then save the image as a .PDF document.

I have a Samsung BlackJack II w/ Windows Mobile 6.1.  It has a PDF Viewer app and MS Excel that both allow me to do it.

Just check your phone's apps.  You can probably do the same thing, or download a free program that will let you.

You can zoom in as close as you need to.  My phone's screen is about the same size as a DS screen.

I mostly use it simply to view Excel spreadsheets if I'm away from my office.  Trying to edit spreadsheets on my phone ... now that's a headache.

Windows Phone 7 Achievements to feature up to 200 Gamerscore points per game



We just got our hands on the Windows Phone 7 during an interview at GDC, and given our unnatural obsession with bolstering our online notoriety, the most prevalent question in our mind was: just how many Gamerscore points can we crank outta this thing? The answer: A beefy 200 Gamerscore points per game, which will be added to your total Gamerscore, as displayed on your Xbox Live Gamertag profile.

We'll be writing up our impressions of the platform, as well as our interview with its creators, later today. For now, rest assured knowing that when you unlock an Achievement in a Windows Phone 7 game, it totally makes that satisfying "bloop-bloop" noise.

I don't even have a mobile. When my last one broke i didn't bother to replace it, I barely leave the house, so it seems pointless

Microsoft Game Studios is setting up a dedicated phone developer, working on games that will - among other things - bring existing franchises like Halo to mobile, and connect to Xbox Live.

The news comes from a job ad we spotted this morning, and follows the reveal of Windows Phone 7 earlier this year.
"Microsoft Games Studios is establishing a new studio - MGS Mobile - focused on bringing games and entertainment to the mobile life that people lead," says the ad, which seeks a Producer to lead development of "new first-party groundbreaking mobile title(s) for the Windows Phone 7."

It also says that the news studio "will be the hub for MGS franchises and titles on mobile devices." So it's conceivable that we could see a Halo, Fable or Forza game on mobile - a vision first expressed by Bill Gates back at E3 2006.

The clumsily-named Windows Phone 7, which we saw at E3, connects to Xbox Live to show you your Avatar and Gamercard, and Microsoft confirmed that it would be developing games that could be played across phone, PC and Xbox Live Arcade. Which is where the new studio comes in.

One to watch, anyway - Microsoft's keen on getting a bigger piece of the smartphone market, currently dominated by Apple and RIM's Blackberry, and gaming is something it's already good at.
