hi. learning iPad (I'm about to acquire an iPad2), coming from androids. more power to this site!
Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!
Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.
Have fun and enjoy your iPad

Hi Jtdc - welcome to the forum!
Plenty of great folks here to help and MUCH information already available, so check out the forums and the search functions - good luck!
thanks for the warm replies. my boxed unit is arranged to come in tomorrow, but i am not touching it without my ordered screen protector, front and back covers. in the meantime, is itunes necessary to be downloaded, and an itunes account? is it not readily usable outside the box? they say iOS5 is now geared to be independent of itunes, or is that just false? thanks!

# The screen protector is a great thing, you have no idea how often my screen accidentally gets scratched.
# You need an Apple Account to purchase apps, both free ones and paid ones. This can be created on the iPad, but if you wanting something to do while you wait, you can create your account on your computer.
# They say so, that we can now say goodbye to iTunes, but I still prefer to have iTunes available for me, and if you want to restore you iPad at any stage you will need iTunes anyway.
