Peek Pronto Handheld Does Email, Texting Faster
At any rate, the outfit has just unveiled its second-ever device, the Pronto. Unlike the original Peek -- which will still be offered as the 'Peek Classic' for $49.95 -- the Pronto adds in unlimited text massaging and Push email notifications. Moreover, it provides compatibility with Microsoft Exchange, the ability to view images / PDFs / Word documents, access to up to five email accounts, an email search function, 50% faster software and a larger font size option for those with trouble seeing tiny screens.
Basically, what $79.95 gets you is yet another device to carry around alongside your cellphone, but it supposedly handles email on-the-go about as good as any smartphone on the market. That said, there's still a painful $19.95 monthly fee to swallow (but no contract to speak of), as all that Push email and unlimited texting won't just happen for free. If you're intrigued, you can order a Pronto today exclusively on Amazon.com, and retail lovers can wait until April to pick one up at Radio Shack.
