I’m really excited about today’s contest. Possibly because I’m sort of a gadget geek.
If you’re a regular here you know that I’m slavishly devoted to my iPhone—I run my own business and I’m also a full-time mom, and so the ability to do almost everything I can do from my home office from soccer practice, or in the car, or in a waiting room, is awesome. It’s everything I need.
Plenty of my stay-at-home mom friends, though, say things to me like “I’d love to be able to check email while I’m out, but I just can’t justify the cost of an iPhone or a Blackberry.” And that’s a valid point, I suppose. In fact, that’s a common sentiment… which is why Peek was invented.
Peek is smaller and thinner than other devices (check out a review and comparison pictures here), and all it does is email. Just email. So if you want email and only email in the palm of your hand, Peek may be just the thing for you. Peek retails for $99.95 and the contract-free monthly service costs just $19.95/month.
One lucky Want Not reader is going to win a Peek device with a free month of service, a $119.90 value. You even get to choose what color you get! And I will send you an email telling you that you are pretty, and you can read it on your Peek! (Gratuitous exclamation points included free of charge.) For a chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post by 3:00 p.m. Eastern (noon Pacific) on Wednesday, October 8th, 2008. One comment/entry per person, valid email address required. Extemporaneous, original poetry about the Peek is not required, but will probably make me laugh. Winner to be determined by random number generation and spam mail headlines (“Dearest One, I must urgently speak with you on a matter of great national importance”).
