Just tried it on my curve, a full sheet of 10 point text and a signature were legible when opened on a standard computer monitor. There's a lot of background greys etc and make sure you have decent light but to do a quick save on a document it would work. I just wouldn't want to have to print out too many of these as hard copy records. The ink bill would be a killer. That and if you're doing this be sure to install the micro SD as picture storage. Some pretty good deals, $15 for 2 GB.
