TwitterPeek: The Tweet, The Whole Tweet and Nothing but the Tweet

Ainsley Jones

The world's first Twitter mobile device made its debut on Amazon.com today. TwitterPeek, from New York-based mobile startup Peek, sets out to enable users to tweet on the go 24/7 without the need of a smartphone or data plan. The Wall Street Journal reports that the device, which includes a full keyboard, always-on tweet delivery, nationwide Internet coverage and six months of service, can be had for $100. After the six-month period, service costs $8 per month. For $200, TwitterPeek can be purchased without monthly charges.

 

Sharon Gaudin of Computerworld sees value in the product for avid tweeters and Twitter-friendly businesses. However, Gaudin notes that the gadget market has moved beyond devices that do only one thing.The benefit of a smartphone is that it limits the number of things folks have to carry around and stay connected.

 

PC World's Sascha Segan calls TwitterPeek a neat idea executed poorly. One market where TwitterPeek could find success is with teenagers with limited budgets, says Shiny Shiny.
