I know that there are a lot of people out there who constantly email and text. At the same time, there are plenty of people out there that want to save money and are thinking about canceling their data plan on their mobile phone. A new device has launched from Peek called the Peek 9 that is perfect for the people looking to cut their mobile bills.
The Peek 9 is a device that looks like a smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard and a 2.5-inch screen. This always-on portable can text cell phone users for free, and send/receive emails from web accounts, Outlook, and Exchange, as well as post to Facebook and Twitter. The device also has 8MB of internal memory. The radio inside is a GPRS 800/1800/1900MHz unit. The CPU in the machine is an ARM7 running at a pokey 104MHz, but you really don’t need much power to send and receive messges, do you?
You can pick the Peek 9 up for $69.99 (USD) without any service. You can get it for $99.99 with service for two months. After that service is $19.99 monthly, $179.95 yearly, or $249.95 for lifetime service.
