I don't think so my little brother has a tablet and he is only four I got my first pod on my 9 birthday. The horrible thing is that my little sister is 2 and she is always on my step moms phone.

You spelt tablet "table." :). when I was 8 I wanted a phone but didn't get one until I was 12. 4-year-olds should have tablets for educational proposes, they have protective cases and good apps that could be used to learn. when I was 4 I have a tablet. a lot of 8-year-olds have phones for safety reasons. when I was 8 I should have had a phone because I got lost a lot and my mother never picked me up in time. It is especially important for 8-year-olds to have phones because they have a tendency to get lost, and if they need some one to pick them up from school or sports it can be very helpful. If they need help from friends on homework they can text or call them. :)

Yes that is a good point but if you listen to the news ever kids could get apps that someone who was in jail and find out their address or their birthday.

With the iPhone it is extremely hard to create an app, and they check the app though a long process. along with that you need to know your parents app store password to download a app. :)
