While most of the wireless industry is focused on converging devices, the new Peek device breaks tradition to offer consumers an easy-to-use, less expensive mobile email solution. Extremely simple to set up and use, Peek is the only mobile device that allows the user to start sending and receiving emails in less than two minutes. For a flat monthly fee, Peek users can access up to three of their existing accounts from top email providers, and Qualcomm's network managed services ensure message delivery.
“We chose to work with Qualcomm because of their network infrastructure, overall reliability, scalability and great reputation,” said Amol Sarva, chief executive officer of Peek. “Together with Qualcomm, we are excited to offer the first simple, affordable, mobile email solution that extends the reach of email connectivity to people that were previously out of reach.”
Founded by seasoned wireless industry entrepreneurs, Peek is the only easy-to-buy, easy-to-use, affordable email-only mobile device on the market today.

It is a pocketsize device without the complicated features usually found packed into an all-in-one smartphone. Designed to be a great looking device whose function is as elegant as its form, Peek is simple to set up, gets people emailing within minutes, and works anywhere by connecting to cell phone towers behind the scenes.
