FBReader can read DRM-free MOBIs that don't have high compression. It can typically use any font installed on the device (preferences/cogwheel -> styles). The script mobidedrm.py can strip the DRM on your desktop, and the few ebooks with high compression can be converted to ePub (for FBReader) using Calibre.
