Macular Degeneration - big font high contrast

I have just come back from the Low Vision clinic and a 90 year old relative is now looking for an ereader or tablet.

I would welcome suggestions for eReaders with very large fonts, very good contrast and hopefully easy to use


In two related threads I have received some excellent help but now I would like specific hardware suggestions. My relative is mobile, but I cannot take her to lots of shops to try lots of different eReaders so I need to target the eReaders.

She read successfully from a 7" HTC Flyer with font set to be about 5mm high (excluding the height of ascenders or descenders). So in landscape there was about 7 lines of text on the screen. My concern is that an Android tablet might be too complex for her so before I go down that route I want to first look at e-ink

Thanks
