Logitech has announced the expansion of its tablet accessories as well as solar-powered product portfolio in India with three new products – Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover and Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio which are made for the new, third-generation iPad as well as the iPad 2; and Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 for Mac, iPad or iPhone.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Subrotah Biswas, Country Manager of Logitech India and South West Asia, said, “Logitech believes in providing a superior consumer experience, to people from different walks of life, which is aimed towards aiding productivity. The new Logitech keyboard cases – with their sleek, smart design and extended keyboard battery life – provide a convenient way for consumers to do more with their iPad; while the Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 will appeal to Apple users.” He also added, “We pride ourselves on being a consumer-centric organization, and we are committed to provide consumers the joy of being immersed in the digital world.”
Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover
Called the “perfect partner for your iPad,” the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover protects the iPad screen with a slim aluminum cover that adds negligible weight, and features a built-in keyboard that pairs through Bluetooth. When users want to type an email or watch a movie, the keyboard’s built-in stand holds the iPad at the best angle. Similar to a Smart Cover, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover attaches quickly and securely to the iPad with a magnetic clip.
It has an Instant On/Off feature, which means the iPad automatically wakes up when one opens the cover, and switches to standby when one closes it. And with a six-month battery life (based on two hours-per-day usage), users will be able to “spend more time typing and less time worrying” about their keyboard losing power. With function keys for enhanced navigation, and a piano-black finish, this keyboard cover adds both functionality and style to the iPad.
Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio
The Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio includes onboard solar cells that charge the built-in Bluetooth keyboard in any light, whether indoors or outdoors.
When fully charged, the battery lasts for up to two years, even in complete darkness (based on an average use of two hours per day). The folio offers two stand positions – 1) open the folio and place the iPad in the first position to enjoy the full keyboard when typing, 2) place the iPad in the second position and the first keyboard row acts as the one-touch media playback and volume controls.
Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760
The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 is stylish and compact with onboard solar cells for hassle-free charging. With its easy-switching Bluetooth connection, users can pair their keyboard to as many as three devices and switch among them without having to reconnect. It features a slim, minimalist design and Mac-specific keys, including Command, Brightness, Eject and more.
The unique Logitech concave key design is supposedly more comfortable, enables quiet typing, and offers more speed and precision than typing on an on-screen keyboard. Similar to the Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio, one can charge this keyboard in any light – low light or lamp light, indoors or outdoors. Fully powered, the keyboard works for at least three months, even in total darkness (based on average use per day of eight hours).

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, the Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio and the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 are available in India for a suggested retail price of Rs. 6,599, Rs. 8,999 and Rs. 6,599, respectively.
