Welcome to IcarusReader.com

We have been a driving force in the e-reader market since 2008. Our starting point is maximum freedom. To read the books you like whenever, wherever. But also to be able to buy, borrow or download books where you want to.

The Icarus e-readers are completely open, meaning you can get your content from any source. You can even purchase e-books from  our competitors’ bookstores and read them on our devices. Also popular e-book subscription services like Skoobe, Scribd, Storytel, Bookmate and more work perfectly on our e-readers. Our customers use Icarus devices for accessing e-books via their libraries or reading news via RSS apps or news article apps like Pocket. With an Icarus e-reader you do not only have access to more e-books than with any other e-reader. You also have a futureproof solution in which you can add Android apps to enhance the e-reader's functionality.

You can check out our products and purchase them directly with us in our webshop. And if you should ever need support, this website is also the place to go.

We wish you unlimited reading pleasure!
