Logitech creates solar-powered iPad keyboard/case combo

Logitech has announced the Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio. Serving as a case, a stand, and a Bluetooth keyboard, the solar panels on the outside of the case are able to charge the keyboard. The case also has instant on/off functionality similar to the other keyboard/iPad case Logitech introduced recently.

The folio has two stand positions that enhance your tablet experience, holding your iPad in the right position so you don’t have to. In the first position you can enjoy the full keyboard when you’re typing. In the second position, the first keyboard row acts as your media playback and volume controls so you can play, pause and change volume instantly – it’s perfect for watching a video or listening to music.

The Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio will retail for $129.99 and is expected to be available this month. You can preorder it from Logitech today.

I think this is definitely a nice functionality that keeps the iPad portable and its accessories functional but it would be really exciting if the solar panels could trickle charge the iPad.
