Logitech recently announced its Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for Apple's new third-generation iPad and iPad 2, and now the company has unveiled its new Solar Keyboard Folio, an ultra-slim book-style case for protecting the iPad, with a built-in keyboard that is powered by light.
According to Lohitech, the Solar Keyboard Folio ($129.99) has onboard solar cells that charge the built-in Bluetooth keyboard in any light, whether indoors or outdoors. It has an instant On/Off function, which automatically wakes the iPad when you open the folio and goes on standby when you close it. The battery on this device is said to last for up to two years after a full charge based on an average use of two hours per day. As you can see in the image above, the Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio is also a stand for your iPad, it has two stand positions as described below:
Open the folio and place your iPad in the first position to enjoy the full keyboard when you’re typing. Place your iPad in the second position and the first keyboard row acts as your one-touch media playback and volume controls, so you can play, pause and change volume instantly.
