Peek plans to integrate software on cheap phones

Peek might be best known for its compact email devices, but the company is now said to be looking to partner with manufacturers over in Asia to develop low-cost smartphones for emerging markets. The move is apparently aimed at turning the company into a profitable one in the long term. Peek has already sold a good 50,000 devices and is said to be close to turning a profit. The idea is to have its Peek software running on cheap smartphones that could be going for as low as $50. The software is designed to work on Qualcomm’s BREW platform and is compatible with low-cost chips from MediaTek. Let’s see what Peek will be able to come up with in the near future.
