Type with light on Logitech’s new Wireless Solar Keyboard for Mac, iPad and iPhone

Today Logitech announced the expansion of its solar offering with the new Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 for Mac, iPad or iPhone. A continuation of Logitech’s solar series, which started with the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 and has continued with the Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio for iPad, this new keyboard adds Bluetooth® connectivity with an easy-switching capability. It allows you to simultaneously pair multiple devices and quickly switch among them with the push of a button.

“Laptops, smartphones and tablets are ubiquitous – both at work and at play,” said Denis Pavillard, vice president of experience design at Logitech, in a statement. “Because Apple devices are central to this trend, Logitech is committed to improving the way people interact with them. With its simple solar charging, familiar Mac layout and comfortable design, the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 will appeal to Apple users worldwide.”

The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 is stylish and compact with onboard cells that are powered by light for hassle-free charging. With its easy-switching Bluetooth connection, you can pair your keyboard to as many as three devices and switch among them without having to reconnect. This means you can move from typing on your Mac to your iPad to your iPhone – and back again – with the simple push of a button.

The perfect match for your favorite Apple device, the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 features a slim, minimalist design and Mac-specific keys, including Command, Brightness, Eject and more. The unique Logitech concave key design gives you more comfortable and quiet typing, and offers more speed and precision than typing on an on-screen keyboard.

And, with its environmentally friendly PVC-free construction, fully recyclable box and onboard cells for charging, this keyboard is designed to minimize its environmental footprint. Similar to the existing Logitech Solar Keyboards, you 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 Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in June 2012, for a suggested retail price of $79.99. More information here.

    1. Why is a number pad so important to you? You can find any number of Bluetooth enabled number pads in the market on eBay or Amazon.

      The design of this keyboard and of the Apple Bluetooth keyboard follows the principle of compactness – that the BT keyboard should mirror the functionality of the MacBook Pro keyboard so you can transition between the MBP and iMac seamlessly.

      If you don’t understand that – Apple’s desire to maintain design consistency across its product lines, you understand nothing about Apple’s philosophy at all.

  1. The last outboard number pad I tried didn’t function properly when using the calculator app. They didn’t map the clear key to it. I’m with Tbone on this one–no number keys, no sale.

  2. I agree with the others. I miss the keypad on my iMac’s Apple keyboard and have had unreliable function from both a Bluetooth keypad/calculator and from a USB connected keypad. I do not think the extra length would ruin the aesthetic as much as the cable does so I wish Apple would make a Bluetooth version of their keyboard with keypad! Same applies to iPad.
