Biggest users of $500 iPad? Kids reading books


Megan Notarte bought an iPad on the first day it was available, and planned to keep it for herself. But as the mother of two boys, ages 2 and 4, she soon discovered that she would have to share this newest toy from Apple with her sons.

Notarte, a blogger and Web developer, is only half joking when she says she has contemplated buying two so that she won't have to share her iPad.

"My kids love playing games on it and watching movies we've downloaded on iTunes," she wrote to WalletPop in an e-mail. "My 4-year-old plays by himself and with me, depending on the complexity of the app. Also, we've delayed replacing our handy portable DVD player because I think the iPad will be a more-than-sufficient replacement."
