Sep 6th 2008 11:44PM Good review, here is my feedback about evaluation of 1st generation peek:
1/ Email receiving is too slow - select "send/receive" from peek manually doesn't help because PEEK Server connect to email server only every 5-15 minutes; push email? forget it.
2/ Doesn't support HTML email;
3/ Doesn't support Google Apps email account;
4/ Doesn't support international language;
5/ Comparing to Blackberry device, its QWERTY keyboard is tough to use, especially the space key, I used BB curve for one year, I know what I am talking about;
6/ Can only open jpg attachment, downloading jpg file is very slow (because of gprs connection only?)
7/ No way to change the email font and size.
8/ The "enter" function with the Scroll navigation is hard to use (need high pressure to push), and not convenient because of its position.
9/ Agree with Maury said, 9.95US$/month service fee will be the best price for Peek device.
10/ It will be great to add MSN/Yahoo/Google IM support into this device, IM doesn't eat bandwidth.
Actually most points list above can be improved by software upgrading, so let's expect something new in short future :-)
Advantages: Small size, well designed, very good battery life, has dedicated 0-9, @ , . key. very simple interface, back key is very convenient.
