Seems Counter intuitive.

See if http://fm.no-ip.com/Auth/area80.html is any help. Remember, higher density (higher DPI) means more stuff crammed into the same space, or the same amount of stuff crammed into a smaller space. Assuming the display device's dot pitch isn't too big, higher also means higher drawing accuracy, and thus higher quality, which with text means smaller jaggies, if any, and less or no need for font smoothing.
