It does that to conserve data transmission as well as space on the device. It's scaled to be optimal on the device since that's the only place it can be viewed. However, you are right - sometimes you need the full image so you can read text (like for fax TIF files).
Once you've opened the picture, click the wheel
and select FULL IMAGE
. That will bring down the entire image (although there may be a 1 Meg limit on that too). Zoom 1:1 views the entire image. Zoom ALL views the entire image within the constraints of the screen.
