An iPhone 4/4S/5, iPad 3, Galaxy III S, Nexus 7, etc (basically any modern high-end phone or tablet) will have dpis well above twice that of your PC, possibly even three times or more.

Start with a high quality device, add a high quality reader (I like Aldiko on Android), switch to "night mode" (white text on black background), and adjust brightness and font size as needed and you may find LCDs a lot more comfortable to read on.
My wife's iPhone 4, at any brightness setting, is better than backlit devices with lower resolution, but can't hold a candle to my low resolution Kindle DX. And night-mode? No, that is extremely uncomfortable. Sepia works best for me.
