Peek has been selling portable devices that look a bit like smartphones without calling capability that support email and texting for a while. The company has three models on the market with the Classic, Pronto, and the new Peek 9.
We talked about the Peek 9 before it launched back in September. The device offers a 2.5-inch screen and has a price of about $70(USD) here in the states – not including service. Peek has offered service in yearly, monthly, and at times lifetime intervals.
Many users of the older Peek devices found late last week that they could no longer use them. Peek reports that the Classic and Pronto devices will no longer work because the carrier used went offline permanently when they launched the new model. To fix the issue, any owner of an older Peek device will get a free Peek 9 upgrade. You can hit up firstname.lastname@example.org if you are an owner needing more details.
