Hat tip to my friend Stephanie Terroir (missgoogle) for pointing out this little device.
The TwitterPeek- Mobile Tweeting Device with Lifetime Service Included -$199.95
So interesting that this device is coming out. I live in a land of smart phones and carrying another device to use twitter seems a little much. BUT as they write in the marketing blurb below. Some folks don’t “get” twitter yet and with all the hype I think this device might really work. I could see handing them out at events maybe to have everyone on the same page tweet wise. Or to your sales team and everyone follows each other for easy communications?
Love to see what you think? Good idea?
* Unlimited tweeting anywhere, anytime
* No contracts, no credit checks, no activation fees ¿ ever!
* Large, full-color screen and full keyboard
* Long battery life of 4-5 days. Fully recharges in under 2 hours

Twitter: Everybody’s Doing It
It seems like everyone and their mother is on Twitter these days. Twitter has become a new way for people to communicate and share ideas. It’s dramatically different from email, phone or texting.
If you don’t already “get” Twitter, it’s about sharing and discovering interesting stories as they happen. With access to Twitter on-the-go, you can participate (or just listen in on) real life conversations that are happening all around the world and close to home.
You might follow the New York Times for breaking news. Lance Armstrong might invite you along on his bike ride through Hamburg. Oprah might let you in on the latest book she’s reading. Or, better yet, you might discover the coffee shop around the corner is offering free scones until 11 am for all tweeters.
You’ll discover an infinite world of conversation with the nifty, pocket-sized TwitterPeek.
