It says "coming soon" so we aren't sure exactly when you might be able to pick one of these up, but it's up on the site to add to your wishlist. Is it worth the environmental footprint? Nope. iPads need more energy than the tiny cells on this case could rustle up -- though that's no concern because the solar cells are only supposed to power the keyboard attached to the case. While it's nice to have the keyboard powered by solar rather than disposable batteries, we still aren't really sure this is worth it. For now, we'd say stick with one you can make yourself until we find out if this cover is really worth it at all.
