Peek 9 adds app platform and maps

Peek after a brief teaser today launched the Peek 9, the latest generation of its always-on e-mail reader. The new version earns its name by running about nine times faster than the Pronto as well as through better reception for its T-Mobile 2G connection. It also becomes a multi-app device for the first time as it can check Google Maps, Facebook and Twitter.

A wider apps platform, Peektop Apps, should also extend the functionality, although its details aren't clear. Core features have been given a lift with Exchange mail support, the option of reading Excel, PDF and Word attachments and an RSS news feed reader.

The Peek 9 doesn't yet come with lifetime service and carries two short-term prices. A $70 price gives the device up front, while a $100 price gives two months of service without a contract. Service on these terms costs $10 a month but gives unlimited data for the apps Peek supports and also supplies unlimited SMS.
