E-Mail Checking Device Peek Launched by Aircel

Monday, March 15, 2010

Aircel Peek
Recently, Aircel unveiled Peek which is an E-mail checking device. Peek comes with a QWERTY keyboard. The gadget is mainly targeted to the Indian email users. Aircel Peek comes at Rs. 2,999.

According to the Aircel, Peek is the thinnest email device in the market. Aircel Peek gadget comes in the two colors - black and red. It has around 2-3 days battery capacity. Users can store upto 5000 email massage and about 1000 contacts.

About the price tag and plan, an Indian news portal writes, “It would have been nice if the Rs. 2,999 you pay for the device is the only cost you incur. Sadly, that's not the case. Since it is an email device that you can use on the go, it needs an Internet connection and Aircel would want you to choose from its prepaid and postpaid plans. On prepaid offers, users get unlimited email service for Rs. 897 for 90 days. After the initial 90 days, subscriber can recharge with Rs. 89 for 7 days validity or with Rs. 299 for 30 days validity. Coming to the postpaid scheme of things, pay Rs. 897 for three months of unlimited email service. Post this, the user will be charged Rs. 299 per month for the e-mail usage. This is not exactly appealing since all you can do with this exclusive Internet connection is check e-mails.”

About the gadget the above mentioned news portal writes, “Aircel seems a little interested in getting a chunk of this messaging pie and has, for the same reason, launched a new device called the "Peek". The Peek is primarily advertised as an e-mail handset. There is a "new e-mail alert" LED on the top of the device that alerts users when they receive an e-mail. Great! Now, the problem with this one is that Peek is just an exclusive e-mail device. Sure, it looks like a phone - but did you notice any Receive/ End call buttons on the device? No, right? This is because, what you thought was a phone doesn't actually make calls! It's just an e-mail device - and that's just about it.”

Overall, Aircel Peek is a well designed email gadget that is basically to send a mail. In the current time, the gadget has real need in the Indian market. I think it is the biggest news just like Micromax C112.
