EVER SINCE Apple launched the first Ipad we've certainly seen an influx of peripherals dedicated to serving the tablet pioneer. Even the most unassuming shops stock cases and covers for the Ipad, in a variety of colours and designs.

As a result, there aren't that many Ipad users around that don't pamper their Apple tablets with some sort of add-on such as a protective sleeve. At £500 a pop, it's not surprising that they want to keep their beloved poke-pads safe and sound.

One firm that does well in this area is Swiss hardware maker Logitech. Specialising in computer accessories for over 30 years, Logitech has long been a leading vendor of such peripherals as mice and keyboards among a variety of other things. Today Logitech is still going strong, with an extensive catalogue of extras and add-on gadgets for many personal computers and mobile devices.

Back in May, the firm released an accessory for the Apple Ipad that was unique among others on the market - the Solar Keyboard Folio.

The Solar Keyboard Folio is an energy-efficient, protective book-style keyboard case for the Ipad and at £119, it's not the cheapest out there, but it certainly looks suave.
