While Google Android was designed for phones and tablets with color displays, there are a number of eBook readers with E Paper displays that feature Android-based software. Barnes & Nobleís NOOK eReaders, for instance, are powered by Android. But they feature a custom user interface so that youíd hardly know Googleís software was under the hood unless you rooted those devices.

And then thereís the Icarus Illumina HD. Not only does this eReader feature a 6 inch E Ink display and Android 4.2 software. It actually comes with the Amazon Kindle app pre-loaded, making it an odd little alternative to Amazonís own Kindle devices.

Itís a newer version of the Kindle Android app, version 4.5.1.6, with adjustable font types and audiobook integration, although audiobooks donít work on the Illumina HD because it does not support audio.

I was surprised to find that the Kindle Android app works better on the Illumina HD than it does on the Onyx Boox T68. It loads a little faster, page transitions and scrolling are slightly smoother, and Iíve experienced zero crashes. The biggest difference, the interface works flawlessly on the Illumina HD when shopping and browsing the Kindle store, whereas the T68 mostly crashes and when it does load the Kindle Store menus are hard to read and navigate.
