I still happily use my Acer A501 (which is pretty dated by now) which is a 10 inch Android tablet (Android 4). I use it for PDF's, Comics on PDF, and Zinio mags. I can read on Kindle and FBReader as well.
It's screen is faded compared to new tablets or the iPad (which I own as well) - but it is still my go to device.
Eink (and I own 3 of those - all Sony - and my wife has a Kindle 4) is the only answer when you read in sunlight. The 7" tablets are fantastic for ereading - but some PDF's, Comics and some magazines are a bit cramped - depends on your eyes of course.
I like the suggestion of the Asus TF300 - keyboard would be optional...
