interface for people with very poor eyesight?

I'm investigating a phone for a person whos recently lost most of his
eyesight and thinking about the freerunner.

Does anyone have experience with phones for nearly blind people?

I'm considering the freerunner rather than a simple phone with very
large buttons for the following reasons:

- it can say whos calling
- gestures to accept/reject calls
- ebooks/radio can be streamed over wifi and gesture controlled

Of course the display would be nearly useless, except for the touch
area, so if its possible to buy freerunners with dead pixels cheaply,
I'm interested.
