Illumina XL

The Illumina XL HD... Limited Edition!

Read your favorite books in paperback size with the ICARUS Illumina XL HD. It features a 7.8” E-Ink Carta HD touch screen with 300 DPI resolution. With 75% more screen property, the Illumina XL HD allows you to read more on one page or to use bigger fonts than normal 6” e-readers do. Even compared to 6.8” e-readers the Illumina has a 38% bigger screen.

With a 1.6Ghz processor and 1Gb of RAM this is also Icarus' fastest e-reader ever.







The 7.8" E-Ink Carta HD offers high contrast like a paper book. The paperback is not the preferred book size in the world without reason. It offers the perfect trade-off between comfortable reading and compact dimensions.

The bigger screen size offers many advantages:

  • Bigger fonts possible
  • Less page turns needed
  • Easy to navigate user interface, with large and clear icons   
  With a resolution of 1872 x 1404 pixels, the screen offers crisp and sharp letters and high contrast with rich blacks and clear whites. Even the smallest font size can be read perfectly, allowing you to view more text on one page than ever before.
  The capacitive touch screen is multitouch: tap to open a menu-item, swipe to navigate or turn pages, and pinch-to-zoom for changing font size.
  Thanks to the front light you can read comfortably even in low-light environments. The light can also be turned off completely.
  Powered by Android and including Google Play you can easily find, install and manage your favorite apps and add functionality to your e-reader. Use it for comics, RSS feeds, e-mail and more.
  Wi-Fi 802.11 allows you to connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot for downloading books or apps on the go, without the need for a computer.
  Listen to background music while reading or listen to your favorite music with the dedicated music player.
  The Illumina XL HD comes with 16Gb of internal memory, which is enough for thousands of books. The memory cannot be expanded.



Read comfortably day and night

The e-reader comes with an integrated front light. This means you can read comfortably during the day and at night. The intensity of the light can be adjusted and the light can be switched off completely too. 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.


A world of books and apps at your fingertips

Thanks to the Wi-Fi connectivity you can wirelessly browse the web and access content on the go. With Android 4.2 you can install your own apps, from your favorite reading app to social media or productivity apps. The XL comes with integrated Google Play Store for easily finding, installing and managing apps. Add Dropbox to read books stored in the cloud or check your e-mail on the E-Ink screen. Many libraries have their own reading app, giving you access to thousands of books for only a small membership fee.

With the Illumina XL HD you are not tied to any ebook ecosystem: you can choose freely where you get your books from and have access to more ebooks than via any other e-reader on the market.


Supports all relevant book formats, even audio books!

Naturally, the ICARUS Illumina offers support for all relevant e-book formats and has many options for adjusting the layout of your books. You can also listen to music or audio books or background music while reading.


Great for PDF

Naturally the ICARUS XL HD has great PDF support, with PDF Reflow, many options for adjusting documents and fast page turns. And PDF documents look better on the bigger screen than on typical 6” e-readers.
