Peek Email-only Handheld Adds Unlimited Text Messaging

Illustration for article titled Peek Email-only Handheld Adds Unlimited Text Messaging

Peek, the feature-sparse, email-only handheld will be adding unlimited text messaging to its service within the next few weeks. This will be done by taking advantage of the fact that most cellphones can receive text messages that have been emailed and send text messages to email addresses. Sure, it isn't an elegant solution but it's a clever workaround and it gets the job done. What more could you expect from the guys that somehow garnered enough votes to be considered the best gadget of 2008? [Alley Insider]

At first this looked like a fine/great idea. But then I saw it is 80$ for the item and 20$ for the service. Perhaps it can be used instead of pagers? I don't know though, most places that use them only want one way communication.
