Logitech has been hitting the news a lot lately, first with their Ultrathin Keyboard Cover (US$100, and — ahem — we’re still waiting for a review unit) and now with the Solar Keyboard Folio ($130, available for pre-order).

The new case is of the familiar folio style, flipping one way for typing and another for viewing media. It also features the popular “magnets in the cover” trick to turn your iPad 2 or third-generation iPad on and off with a flick.

Logitech’s marketing materials say that the Solar Keyboard Folio’s Bluetooth keyboard will last for two years of typing two hours per day once fully charged, and it appears that sunlight or lamp light will continue to trickle charge the battery so it’s topped off.

We’re hoping to get one for review in the near future, so stay tuned.
