Icarus eXceL review


There are two striking things about the eXceL, which tops Icarus' range of eBook readers. The first is its huge 9.7" E Ink screen, and the second is its eye-watering price; it's four times as expensive as Icarus' own Pocket model.

This huge eReader has some great features, but they aren't all easy to use and it's very expensive
