10 iPad Cases Fit For Summer

Taking your iPad along on vacation this year? Then you will want a special case to protect against sand, surf, and other tablet enemies.

This clever case uses light to power its built-in Bluetooth keyboard.

Logitech's Solar Keyboard Folio can't power your iPad, but its keyboard can pull in energy from multiple light sources, including the sun and indoor lamps. Once the keyboard is fully charged, you can type on it for two years, Logitech claims--even in complete darkness, assuming you use it two hours a day.

Priced at $130, the Solar Keyboard Folio includes a multi-view stand with two options for typing or viewing. The Folio might not be as rugged as the other cases in this roundup, but it's a good choice for keyboard users who want the convenience of a solar-powered peripheral.

re: 10 iPad Cases Fit For Summer
Great set of case reviews. I've tried a couple already. One that I have come to like a lot when traveling in the summer is the iLoc Case. It's inexpensive and disposable but re-usable. I use it for my iPad around sunset surfing the web. Don't have to worry about getting sand in my iPad and saved me a couple times during high tide - you know those times when all of your stuff gets blanketed with water when you're looking for shells. I pick them up at http:\\ for just a couple dollars.

Pelican HardBack? It has a keyboard!!! Real die hard Apple fanbois don't converge a frdige with a toaster! Apple said that keyboards for a tablet are bad bad bad, so don't do it - not even when it turns your tablet into something useful.
