The iPad IS meant for the mind of a two year old.
Well you got me there, the iPad is perfect for kids. I have found one use for it. Its great in yugioh tournaments when one wants to look up a card or deck strategies. Still packing my old cards from when I was in grade school. Still hanging onto a few relinquished cards with rituals.

I'm sure he was being sarcastic...i can feel it...in his text...he's about to POP!!! No, but really, are there any more of 1 month's worth of ipad news in one week? Or are you guys pretending to avoid more Android tablet news that other sites are covering?....Am I being sarcastic?
My son has been using our iPad Touches since he was about 18 or so months old (we just don't choose to plaster it over the internet like so many other nuts do .. I guess to feel important)... But at around the 24-26 month age he really started using it. He navigates around going from videos to the apps we've installed for him (he can even find the same apps on the different touches despite being in different places). He is surprisingly gentle with it despite being a bruiser with so many other toys.
I'm not an apple fanboy, but I must say their iphone/touch/ipad interface is exceptional.
Is it just me or does the camera guy sound like he's interviewing a pornstar before a porno? I mean come on, "We have a new toy. Are you ready for a new toy? Do you like new toys?" Just saying... Hope I'm not the only one here...
The kid onviously has previous experience of using the device, this isn't like a first encounter. General use of touch screen apps is very point and click and if a child can't do that or play very basic games designed for kids then I would have to worry about that childs motoskills (not sure if that is spelt right though).
What I want to see is what happens when the child gets bored and Mummy or Daddy isn't watching and the device gets dropped or thrown to the floor and walked on...
she has used an itouch or phone before, notice how she knew to go to the center button to go back to the main screen. That is a learned response not instinct. She has played with iphones or ipod touch, nothing different there other than its way bigger.
I tried teaching my nephew how to use a laptop and a PSPgo... It was difficult. He was 3.
Took a matter of minutes to learn how to use the stylus, but teaching him the mouse and a couple keys took a few days.
Devices such as these shouldn't take long for a child to learn how to use. They're designed to be simple.
I was considering buying my nephew a Wii, but maybe I actually might have a reason to buy a iPad after all.
a) Using an Apple device only proves you have at least the intelligence of a 2 year old.
b) You can never teach your kid soon enough that it's ok to overpay for something as long as it's name brand and shiny.
