Unlimitted emailing at a fixed cost, well thats what Aircel promotes by introducing Peek. Peek is a low cost email device. An user needs to register his email account once and his email is automatically delivered to the Peek. Push mail delivers new emails to your Inbox automatically. Device will cost only around Rs. 3000 and would require another Rs. 300 monthly for the email service.

Peek is minimilistic and you should not expect the features of a smartphone. In short you should be a Peeky !!! The user interface is simple, there is a clickwheel to browse the inbox and an all purpose cancel/back button. Using the backspace key you can delete spam and unwanted emails. You’re notified of a new email in 3 ways – the blinking envelope indicator on the top left, a vibrate alert, and a sound alert.
Peek is not a storage device as it has only 8 MB of memory and not a smartphone as it has only a 100MHz processor. It’s battery lasts for 2 to 3 days for an average email user.
