My kid's 7. He has an HP touch-screen, which he mainly uses for games and the internet (for netflix streaming and cartoon network). I had a hard time with this at first and kept calling it "mommy's computer" and they'd both correct me.
He has a hand-me-down cell phone from his mother that we put in his backpack when we take him places so if we ever get separated, he can just call us. This has never happened, but really puts our minds at ease. He used to like playing video game demos on our phones until he accidentally bought one and now he's got a temp ban on that sort of thing.
We gave him a small ipod shuffle that my wife used to have, but he doesn't use it much.

Tracer, there are some great kids apps out there. Tozzle is fab, Games created by Toddler Teasers, MyCar is just a fun making pictures kind of thing, lunchbox is fun though you may need to help him play bits of that. There's a couple of peppa pig game apps too!
