The month view in the Calendar on my device looks something like this:
enter image description here

On my device (HTC Titan, one of the larger WP handsets) I can only see teeny tiny text inside each day and there's no pinch/zoom so there's no way at all for me to make use of that information. It appears to represent the actual live content of my calendar (though it's hard to be sure), so it would definitely be useful if it was even only slightly larger.

Is my experience (unreadable month view text, with no zoom) standard across all Windows Phone devices? Is there a way for me to enlarge it that I haven't figured out?

I hate the way month calendar doesn't use all available space on screen. –  Vitor Canova May 1 '12 at 13:40
    
True. Even in landscape mode. –  Thomas May 1 '12 at 13:55
    
How is this a constructive question? Is there a problem to solve here? It comes across like a gripe to me –  Joe May 1 '12 at 15:48
    
@Joe rereading it i could see what you meant. i've rephrased it. –  hawbsl May 1 '12 at 15:57

The texts aren't from your calendar. They use more lines to show whether you are busy that day or not. These are the texts used in the month view:

  • Dignis milt
    Worthy of milt.

  • Nulla facilis
    There are no easy ones.

  • Aliquam sodale
    A member

  • Nam rhoncus nis
    For the work

  • Nam nec vulputate
    For the builders

  • Hello from Seattle
    Hello from Seattle

  • Suspendisse egetos
    We suffer

  • Maecenas sem mattis

  • Clas aptent tacitis
    And drive the fleet of silence

  • Vestibulum imperdiet
    Your event

Corrected some misread Latin words and translated them into English. –  Tom Wijsman May 2 '12 at 13:02

+1. I had no idea this is what they said! I thought they just scaled down the text on my appointment –  Joe May 8 '12 at 3:50
    
@Joe me neither! this answer was a small and slightly strange revelation –  hawbsl May 17 '12 at 14:59
    
Thanks, MS really should make the zoomed out view more usable. Some latin text at excruciatingly small font is a very poor UI. –  Double Down Jan 18 '13 at 19:55

There's something funny about the Latin in that sixth phrase. –  Kyralessa Dec 27 '13 at 21:41

The entries you see are markers for calendar entries, the more events on a day the more markers you will see in that cell.

The text in the cell is not derived from the calendar entry, and there's no way to enlarge it. The actual text seems to be picked at random from a small set of strings that it uses to draw the screen, e.g. 'Lorum ipsum' type text.

If you look very closely, one of the strings says "Hello from Seattle"

You CAN enlarge the text, just take a screenshot and open it in the Photos app :)
