suitable for elderly non techies?

I was considering getting my parents (who live in Italy, while I am in the UK) a 360+ each. I could buy and configure the devices, but once I do that they'd be on their own. Dad is not scared by technology, but gets bored easily, but again I could set them up with Adobe, calibre and a good dustbuster and get them going.

However, checking on my own 360 (old model) i see Italian is not among the available languages: does anybody know if Italian support (for the menus) is available?

Also, Kindle would definitely be the lazy option, which however may be easier for them, or so may e.g. Kobo touch: has any of you try and convert a non techie to a PB, and if so are your friends/relatives still in talking terms with you ? Should I go for a 6'' screen instead?
