Logitech is branching out beyond PC accessories with the introduction of a new line of products for Android tablets and the Apple iPad — although to be fair, most of the accessories actually make the experience of using one of these consumer tablets a bit more PC-like.

First up is a keyboard case for the iPad 2 which protects the tablet when closed, and which offers a Bluetooth keyboard for text entry when opened up. Keyboard cases for the iPad are a dime a dozen these days, but this particular model is up for pre-order for $99.99.

The company also offers cheaper Bluetooth keyboards for the iPad and Android tablets for $69.99. These models include a case for the keyboard which folds in half and acts as an iPad stand.

Logitech is also offering a Bluetooth mouse for tablets running Android 3.1 and up. Sure, most Android apps aren’t actually designed for mouse input, but if you’re using your tablet with a keyboard you might find a mouse to be more convenient than moving your fingers back and forth between the keyboard and the touchscreen. The mouse will run $49.99.

Finally there’s the Logitech wireless speaker which is designed to work with an iPad over a Bluetooth connection. The speaker has a built in battery that’s good for up to 10 hours, and a 3.5mm audio jack that lets you amplify pretty much any music device, not just an iPad. The $99.99 price tag also includes a carrying case.

Some of the prices on these accessories seem a bit steep, but I suspect they’ll drop pretty quickly once they hit the market.
