In a surprising move , Aircel had launched the Peek handheld email device in India. The Peek supports multiple email accounts with a unified inbox. Push email service is being provided along with the device. It is also possible to view attachments on the device.
On a hardware front, the Peek is fairly thin and light while packing in a full QWERTY keyboard and a large color screen. Being a single purpose device, the battery life has been optimized and delivers several days of backup time.
Priced at Rs. 2999, the Peek is a decent alternative for companies looking to equip their employees with smartphones for emailing purposes. However due to its single purpose nature, even a basic smartphone will provide much greater functionality.
The Peek data plans are available both on PrePaid and PostPaid and the device is available in Black and Red colors
