Considering you’d normally have to shell out $19.95 per month for an email service plan, and $79.99 for the device itself, that’s a pretty amazing deal if you were planning on using your Peek for over a year.

Is this a fabulous bit of PR, or a sign that Peek isn’t making as much money as they’d like? A one-shot, potentially loss-leading revenue-earning maneuver like this is a business classic (TiVo uses it with some frequency), but could be seen as an indication of financial worries inside the company.

Either way, if you’re in the market for a Peek, then this is a deal not to be sniffed at. Hopefully Peek will be around long enough for you to get your money’s worth.
