The Twitter Peek

PCMag from 2009:
But as soon as I started handling the TwitterPeek, I knew something was wrong. This handheld is painfully slow. Scrolling through button selections or on-screen lists, the cursor is always a bit behind your trackwheel.

TwitterPeek also fails at the most basic function: reading tweets.
Fast Company:
Instead of showing full, 140-character Tweets, this home screen shows tiny, 20-character Twees*, which are totally nonsensical. (Actual example: “so scary!! I really want to s … “) To read the real deal, I had to click twice–first to select the Tweet, then again to select “view tweet” from a pop-up menu.
I saw none on sale at ebay, but there are more reviews at Amazon.
