I've installed Aldiko and the Kindle apps on my Kobo Vox, which allows me to read a variety of ebooks. It's just a matter of finding the APK for these apps.

The Kindle Fire and Nook tablet also have great screens, allegedly. But they're not available outside the US, and even if you import them, they are crippled by the lack of access to Amazon and B&N services. Other Android tablets in the price range of the Kobo Vox tend to have crappy screen, not only are their resolution lower (800x600 generally), but the viewing angles and brightness are lackluster. If you're not looking at the screen straight, colors fade very quickly, even invert.
