Do you really want to carry another device just for Twitter?

I stayed up late last night and watched Josh reveal the Twitter Peek device on the Late Night show with Jimmy Fallon. The new Twitter Peek has the same form factor as the Peek email device, but it only does Twitter. The Peek Classic cost $19.95 and has a monthly cost starting at $15 for email while the new Twitter Peek will cost $199 and includes lifetime Twitter service or $99 for six months followed by $7.95 per month after that. I guess if you are a die hard Twitter fan and don't have a cell phone that supports a Twitter client (every smartphone has clients) then this may be something to look at.

I read that the Twitter Peek doesn't really offer anything better than what you get on a smartphone and you have to click through to read full Tweets as only summaries appear in the main interface. I wonder if the device will support Twitter lists and be upgradeable with possible changes to Twitter as the service evolves. Any readers interested in a dedicated Twitter device like the Twitter Peek?
