Title: Peek - wireless email device
Post by: MissingNo on August 21, 2008, 11:15:39 pm
Apparently there's a new device coming out for those who can't live without their email.
It's called Peek.

It's a portable, smartphone-like device, but only works with email.

It's a Blackberry without the phone. Or the applications. Or anything other than push email.

The folks behind it are planning on a release mid-September from a few sources. You'll be able to pick one up for $100 at Target. The device uses T-Mobile's data network for email retrieval. The $20 a month service costs do put some people off, but, if you're the kind of person who emails more than anything, it's for you.

So, GCLF, thoughts? Would you buy one? I would... but we don't have T-Mobile service where I live. I wonder if they roam, though... and if they sometime down the line would get a mobile web brower.

I can't go a day without email, you see:

*Disclaimer: no, I don't work for Peek. I just love the device. :P*

I wouldn't get one. I hardly even use e-mail.
