A new listing at Best Buy has unveiled — perhaps prematurely — a very interesting gadget: A solar-powered iPad case by Logitech. This confirms a recent rumor that Logitech is working on such a case, though Logitech itself hasn’t officially said a word about it yet. The Best Buy listing looks very real, however. The iPad case comes with a built-in, solar-powered keyboard, which charges in “direct light” and features 121 keys, with dedicated Internet and multimedia keys.
Unfortunately, the case doesn’t seem to power the iPad, only the keyboard. However, that too is an improvement over most keyboard-bearing tablet cases, whose batteries can run out fairly quickly.
On the compatibility front, Best Buy only lists “the new iPad” — there’s no mention of iPad 1 or 2. The case weighs 15.9 ounces and connects to the iPad via Bluetooth, with the price listed at $129.99.
