Peek "Big Product News" Is Free Software Upgrade This Summer

Peek's cryptic tease about their upcoming "really, truly big stuff" has been fleshed out a little, and it looks as though the change isn't new hardware but in fact a software update.  In a recent WSJ piece, Peek CEO Amol Sarva confirmed that the company's "big product news is coming this summer: a free upgrade to all Peeks that significantly expands the capabilities of our mobile internet device."  Unfortunately there's no indication of exactly what that update will bring.

Meanwhile Peek Pronto owners can head over to and get their hands on the latest firmware, v1.09.20 for the Exchange-supporting emailing handheld.  Among the changes are a new lockscreen with date, time, number of new emails and number of new text messages all shown, a new dedicated texting UI, and an improved email inbox, along with various stability and bug fixes.
