Well technically that's a terrible resolution for reading due to pixelization. 
The better way to deal with this is setting a larger font size for the higher 
resolution of the display. I can't even think of any laptop or desktop LCD's 
with a native resolution of 640x480. So to force it to a lower, and thus 
non-native resolution, makes the problem worse.
