They don't need it, but with the way many kids are spoiled these days, it's no surprise that kids want something like this. Where was OUR $150 tablet back then, or our $700 smartphones?

But that's just the cynic in me speaking. Either way, it might sell well, though we don't have to like it.

I don't consider it cynicism. There are always things to spoil kids with, no matter the generation. Doesn't mean that you should buy it for them. I see 5th graders walking around with iPhones. Really? They make Facebook accounts, Instagram accounts, etc. Then parents wonder when they lost touch of their kids.

Wow now I sound cynic lol.

Anyway back to the point, this just simply, unnecessary.

I agree. Tablets and smartphones and such should really be saved for teenagers (or better yet when they can buy their own). But parents today are determined not to let their kids get the social skills that will make them functional adults.

Don't be cheap. Get your kid the Nexus 7. Its worth the extra 50 bucks.

I think it's crazy to get a $800 Ipad for your kid, though I know plenty of my friends Ipads are really their kids. I asked my sister if I could see her new Ipad3 and my nephew had it it was loaded with tons of kids games and childrens book apps he's 3yrs old and uses it more than my sister does. I don't think this will sell well most kids will just take over their parents
