The Peek ($100) was voted Wired’s gadget of 2008 and one of Time Magazine’s best inventions of 2008. The device which is used exclusively for e-mail is getting all kinds of praise from the gadget world. When a Blackberry scares you and your fingers are too clunky for the iPhone, this is the solution. The thin handset provides portable access to e-mail (it’s not a phone, organizer or anything else), but without the hefty fees; monthly service costs about $20 for unlimited access to your messages. The Peek doesn’t work with corporate e-mail yet, so for now, it’s primarily for Web-based mail. It also adds the ability to text message. For anyone who wants to keep in touch when they’re away from a computer, it’s a smart, handy tool.
