The keyboard to stay powered for two years on a full charge, whether it's in sunlight or complete darkness
Logitech unveiled a new $130 iPad accessory that both protects and charges the tablet in one case.
The new case, called the Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio, is a thin case that not only aims to protect a user's iPad from front to back, but also offers a built-in Bluetooth keyboard.
What's unique about the case is that the Bluetooth keyboard is charged using
onboard solar cells
, which draw in indoor or outdoor sunlight. This charging method allows the keyboard to stay powered for two years on a full charge, whether it's in sunlight or complete darkness.
The Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio is capable of two different positions: one where the full keyboard is exposed for typing like a laptop, and another where the keyboard acts as a media playback function for controls like play, pause, volume, etc.
This isn't Logitech's first solar-powered gadget. Back in November 2010, the peripheral company released a
wireless solar keyboard
called the K750. The K750 runs on light power, and was shipped to the U.S. and Europe for $79.99.

Shouldn't it just be called a "tablet case"?

Since it is a Bluetooth device, what about this makes it iPad specific? Shouldn't it work with any 10.1 inch tablet of the approximate thickness of an iPad?
