I shouldn't say impressions of the product, I guess, because most of the people who were Twittering and blogging about the device early on had never seen or used one.

That was admitted by Peek themselves, told to me directly by customer support.

Amazon needs to pull all of these devices from its marketplace. Peek is done. My "life time" service was shut-down on January 30. Today I received a mass email from the head of the company (see below). I guess he didn't know how to complete the fourth paragraph. This was the first I heard they were shutting down. I loved Peek for what it was... and now it's gone.

"Dear Peek user,

Since we launched Peek in September 2008, we received amazing accolades for the product and the support of many, many Peeksters like you.

Since 2010 the business has been taking off in a direction that moved us away from these devices -- putting our cloud platform and software to work bringing smart apps to simple devices made by other mobile phone makers.

We have been winding down the US service since late 2010, and at the end of 2011 this email address was connected to one of a few Peek devices still operating in the US. At the end of January, this last batch of devices was decommissioned.

I'm sorry to report that this

As our Peek cloud powers increasing millions of devices around the world, we hope you'll find yourself using our apps for services like mail, chat, picture sharing, and cloud backup. Indeed, we were just honored by the global mobile industry association with a prestigious Best Technology award nomination. You can read more about this and where we are heading at [...]

All the best,
Amol
Peekster-in-Chief"

The maker is going out of business and no longer is providing the service you need to use this. It will save you the time to dispose of the unit in recycling a week after receiving it. YOU CAN PAY FOR NONREFUNDABLE SERVICE that is not available , with no option for any form of refund.

OCT. 19, 2010 UPDATE:
The TwitterPeek does NOT work any longer. Don't buy it. If you already have a TwitterPeek with LIFETIME SERVICE, this is NOW what PEEK INC. is telling me: PEEK INC. is only offering TwitterPeek Users with LIFETIME SERVICE to switch to a Peek 9 with only ONE YEAR OF SERVICE. No more LIFETIME SERVICE on a direct straight swap. But someone else in the GetPeek discussion forum is saying you have to pay an extra $50 to get lifetime service on the Peek 9 if you want to swap to a Peek 9. It's up to you. But I say: Don't buy the TwitterPeek. Get a real phone with internet on the phone for doing your twitter. Based on my experience with the TwitterPeek, you can expect a DEAD DEVICE and you will be wasting your money.

OCT. 14, 2010 UPDATE:
The TwitterPeek no longer works. The TwitterPeek is a dead device. According to a support message that I've received, PEEK INC has no ETA as to when twitter service may be restored. PEEK INC. is now saying that TwitterPeek users should get the Peek 9 device which is their new email device. There's is a "lemonade" offer where you can get a Peek 9 for $1, but you have to contact PEEK to swap your lifetime service from the TwitterPeek to the Peek 9. But there is NO TWITTER on the Peek 9 because PEEK INC. still hasn't gotten twitter to work. They may advertise twitter on the Peek 9, but they admit twitter is not working. I haven't switched to the Peek 9 yet, but anticipate doing so to at least get some sort of LIFETIME SERVICE that I've originally paid for. [EDIT: my contact at support is checking to see if there is a difference in paying for the Lifetime Service on the PEEK9. If there is, I may not want to get it because I've paid all that I want to pay for these Peek devices.

I have a Twitter Peek and after being without service for many months I finally got support to answer my ticket, after first being pitched the shiny new Peek 9 and refusing it several times I was basically told that because of Twitter's API changes the Twitter Peek Lifetime will never again be in service. Ever.

To be clear, these do not work right now and will never work again. That was admitted by Peek themselves, told to me directly by customer support. I do not understand why these are still for sale.

On top of that their customer support system is awful. It takes weeks and sometimes months to get a reply. There are folks out there with monthly service plans being billed endlessly for service that doesn't exist.

The TwitterPeek is a handheld, dedicated Twitter device recently released by Peek, a company which also makes a similar device for email, the Peek Pronto. The TwitterPeek runs on a wireless network and allows you to Twitter from anywhere in the U.S. where you can get a T-Mobile signal. No wi-fi signal is needed. It sells for $99.99, which gives you six months of free service. After that it'll cost you $7.95 a month. Or you can buy a TwitterPeek for $199.99, which gives you free service for the lifetime of the unit, no monthly fees ever.

I was very excited about the TwitterPeek when news of it surfaced. I was initially put off by the cost of the device, but my lust for the TwitterPeek got the better of me, and I also rethought my position somewhat. The unit itself costs $52.29 if you subtract the six months of service from the $99.99 price tag. Or for $199 you get potentially years' worth of always-on connection to Twitter. Go the latter route and it becomes very cost-effective over time if you're a big Twitter user.

Given my excitement about the release of the TwitterPeek, I was very interested in following its reception in the Twittersphere. So I was really shocked to read that early impressions of the product were extremely negative. I shouldn't say impressions of the product, I guess, because most of the people who were Twittering and blogging about the device early on had never seen or used one. There were two main objections to the device raised: (1) it only does Twitter, and multi-function devices are superior; single-use devices should be avoided; and (2) smartphones already do Twitter, so there's no need for a dedicated Twitter device. These objections, worth raising, were, however, often accompanied by a surprising amount of vitriol.
