The TwitterPeek

Meet the TwitterPeek. At 4 inches long, 2.7 inches wide and one-quarter inch thick, the device looks like a calculator, but it isn't. It sports a full QWERTY keyboard and the Peek team has added a number of nice shortcuts to make navigating Twitter a breeze.

Turn It On!

The welcome screen is very Twitter-like and takes you through step-by-step instructions on how to use the device. After you learn how to use the scroll wheel and other key buttons, log into Twitter with your user name and password.

For better perspective on the TwitterPeek's dimensions, we sandwiched the device between the Motorola Droid and HTC Eris smartphones.

The Back

The device is sleek and metallic, making it quite sturdy. We dropped it a few times and experienced no disruption in service.

The Side

TwitterPeek is super-thin, fitting easily in the palm of one's hand.

Easy Typing

The raised buttons make the TwitterPeek a pleasure to type on, which is good because it's the only way to interface with the device, after the scroll wheel, which also serves as the enter button.
