Peek prototype, breakdown and production design videos

If you've ever wondered what's inside the Peek emailer - or why the company picked the buttons, casing and display they did - then you'll want to see the video after the cut.  In it, Peek's Dan and Gabe explain the development of the emailing handheld.  First, though, there's a somewhat tongue-in-cheek look at the Peek's guts and some prototype hardware.

Peek protest at BlackBerry Storm launch: Bizarre Video

Verizon's BlackBerry Storm launch was something of a success for the carrier: after all, they managed to sell out of the touchscreen RIM smartphone.  One thing I don't remember seeing in the official coverage, however, was Peek's tongue-in-cheek demonstration outside one Manhattan Verizon Wireless store: people dressed in prisoners' uniforms, chained to giant Storms, protesting against two-year contracts.

Peek on sale for $50 today only

If you have any interest at all in the device known as Peek, then you had better get moving! Apparently, for today only you can get the handheld for just $49.95. That's a pretty good deal, which is about $30 off of its previous asking price.

Peek Wireless Email Messenger reviewed: Oversimplified?

The Peek wireless email device seems to polarize opinion; some people are quite drawn to its simplicity and dedication of purpose, while others scoff at the concept of something only doing one task when we expect every other gadget we carry to do multiple.  Gear Diary picked up one of the $99 handhelds and have been testing it out: after all, if you're only going to do one thing, you'd better do it right.
