Apple has absolutely nailed their mission of producing products focused on the user experience. Forget specs and actual numbers. Apple’s iPad is built for you and whomever you share it with. Even if that someone is a 2 year old!

Now I would like to see a 2 year old try and use a Motorola Xoom or a Galaxy Tab. Would they even know how to begin?

    Wow… that’s amazing, yet somehow scary at the same time.

    That is so cool!

  • That makes me wonder: is it a good thing to get our kids addicted to electronics at such a young age?

    • Patrick

      I think it has both pros and cons. Only time will tell i assume.

      I dont see a problem with it as long as its educational. My friends son who is only 17 months, (1 year 5 months) old, takes his mothers iphone and unlocks it, opens the phone app, and calls me or his father all the time. there are so many apps on the app store that help kids learn the alphabet and numbers. But most of the apps are for 2 year olds. my friends son has been doing this for months now. he can turn on the tv and dvd player and watch his dvd without any help. its crazy and amazing at how fast he is learning new things.

    It really is amazing. My son knew how to turn an iPhone on and of at 1, the next step was to call his girlfriends and free up some space for his contacts and msgs, as he erased all of mine. Now that was an iPhone. As for the iPad, I don’t let him even near it, as I know he will dominate that thing and will throw a fit if he doesn’t get it when he wants to =)

      yea, good move on that one. my friends son is the same way, he will throw a fit if he doesnt get what he wants, but we can still make him focus on something else instead. but sometimes hes patient and waits his turn to play with the phone.

  • My “baby” will be 2 next week and has totally mastered the iPad as well. She flips from movie, to game to drawing app effortlessly. I think it really helps the developing the fine motor skills since so many of the tasks require careful tiny movements.

    He skills they auire with the device will most definitly be at the cost of other skills she or he would normally develop. Wether it is for better or worse depends on what society is going to ask of the youngsters. And a big con is the dependancy created, but that is assuming the ipad will be the main interaction hey use.
