New Windows Phone 7 Beta Emulator Contains Image Scaler

Fortunately for developers, and consumers, WP7 devices include a hardware image scaler which means that developers can design their resolution at whatever size they want and have the image scaler adjust everything to look just as good on the whichever screen is running it. This technique is employed in the Xbox 360 and was not available in the old CTP version of the development tools. However, the newly released beta tools support the image scaling feature.
