Now, Peek gets a locator service

6 Apr


No, we are not turning into Peek evangelists (are those called “Peekers”? Hmm…), but we must confess to being impressed by the flurry of services being released for this only e-mail device. Just a few days ago, we were talking about the ability to access cricket scores and Twitter updates on the device, now comes real-time tracking, which lets you tell people where you are, discover where you left the device when you cannot find it, and if you have other people who have Peeks (say, your coworkers), check up where they are, among other things. You can even slap your location as a widget on a blog.

No, it is not going to be as accurate as real GPS, as the Peek does not have GPS built into it, but it is still pretty handy, and of course, consumes lesser battery. Best of all, it is free. You just need to sign up for it at http://www.peekmaps.com/. Hmm…perhaps those who called the Peek a one-trick pony need to do a bit of rethinking.
