The most open 6" e-reader just got even better... introducing the all new Illumina.

Read comfortably day and night
|The Illumina comes with an integrated front light powered by 8 LED lights that brighten the screen from above. The light enables comfortable reading during the day and at night. The brightness can be adjusted and the light can be switched off completely as well. In dark environment we recommend to use only moderate levels of brightness in order to keep the contrast pleasant to the eyes. The highest light settings can be used in light environments to increase the ‘whiteness’ of the screen.|
Compact and lightweight, perfect for travel
The Illumina is smaller and lighter than most books. With a thickness of only 9 mm, it is slimmer than a ballpoint pen.
For protection use our specially designed PerfectFit covers that have a plastic shell that holds the e-reader. Even inside this cover, the Illumina is small enough to carry in a jacket's pocket!
