Peek offers remaining hardware to hackers: ‘maybe somebody can build something great’

Pt 591

Peek offers remaining hardware to hackers: ‘maybe somebody can build something great’ @ The Verge.

Just because the Peek service has been killed off doesn’t mean the devices themselves need to be crushed and swept off into a landfill somewhere. CEO Amol Sarva just dropped us a note to say that he’s got “a few thousand” Peeks still lying around the warehouse that are just waiting for a hacker’s touch: “maybe somebody can build something great,” he says. The notion of a pre-built and tested portrait QWERTY device with a jog dial, QVGA display, ARMv7 processor, and a GSM radio is, in many ways, a hacker’s dream — and Sarva says he can even throw in “some tools” to help them get started. The “operating system sucks but is workable,” he says. Sounds like a challenge to us. Interested folks should contact Amol himself via email — amol at peek.ly — and he says that one of the company’s developers will be in touch.
