Have you heard about Peek? It’s a gadget that let’s you send/receive e-mails and text messages. There’s also a version called TwitterPeek that’s dedicated to getting/sending tweets.
Sounds like a smartphone (a.k.a., an all-in-one gadget with several functions and a fantastic number of apps to help you manage your time and stay on top of things – i.e, stay organized) can handle all that and more, doesn’t it? So, I asked the nice folks at Peek to tell me why someone would choose Peek over an iPhone, Blackberry, or other smart device. They told me to request an interview (I did) and now I’m waiting to hear back from them.
They also told me to try it out and sent me a TwitterPeek to test. It’s cute and pretty light weight, but I have to be honest, I am a bit skeptical. I’ll have a go at it and let you know if it’s a keeper.
If you’ve used any of the Peek devices, please drop me a line telling me what you think. Would you take a Peek over an iPhone?
