I've seen a lot of cases like this mostly with celebrities and rich people. But if it was up to you, would you let your kid/kids have their own cellphones, Ipods, Ipads? I wouldn't probably let my kid have a cellphone until he's 12 or 13. I just don't see the need for it. And although we have an Ipad, it wasn't bought for him therefore not meant as his plaything. The family use it for all sorts of things, mainly like the computer. But I do let him use it for educational games. How about you?
