Scaled-up iPhone Apps Handling Photos Well on iPad?

Flickr app on iPad

Steve Troughton-Smith tweeted earlier saying:

Interesting. Scaled up iPhone apps draw photos at native resolution on iPad? Apparent in the MobileMe galley app

If I’m understanding his point correctly, my quick little trial of this confirms the same sort of results.  The NASA app at 2X mode on the iPad takes a moment, but shows images fairly well.  Images in the official Flickr app look very good – and certainly far better than the text on the page with them.

So apparently at least some pixel-doubled iPhone apps are capable of handling photos quite well?  What sort of results do you all see with photos in your iPhone apps on the iPad?
