Such a clever headline, I know. Having had a Peek for several months, I’ve come to the realization that keeping things simple isn’t always the best option. Sure, for those folks who don’t want a BlackBerry the Peek is a useful device, but I have to wonder who actually uses these things. I think RIM should rerelease the first BlackBerry but with an updated façade. If memory serves me correctly the Peek is a basic clone.
Anyway, it’s a good little device that does its one and only task very well. I’ve never really gotten into these teardown videos, but to each his own. The first video is a look inside the Peek while the second shows the differences between an early prototype and what you can buy today.
