Peek to offer email device

New York-based Peek will launch a mobile device that will act as a sort of modern-day pager with the ability to send and receive emails exclusively. Peek will partner with T-Mobile to provide the data service to deliver and send emails via Gmail, Yahoo mail, AOL and other popular email services. The email device will sport a full QWERTY keyboard, but not bring with it any other features users have come to expect from cell and smart phones, such as a web browser, digital camera, text messaging or music support.

It is not known how much, or if any, memory will be on-hand, or if any card slots will allow users to expand it if so, but it stands to reason the dedicated device will need on-board storage for its digital content.

According to Peek CEO Amol Sarva, the device's appeal will be its ease of use and stylish looks compared to costlier smart phones that also feature email support.

The device, available in cherry, aqua and grey will hit Target store shelves on September 14, and be available to purchase online before then. No contracts will be available, with email plans costing nearly $20 per month from T-Mobile, and the device itself priced at $100. [via Silicon Alley Insider]
