    I have ordered the new iPad and will receive it soon. We now have iPad 2 so we will have to learn how to deal with one apple account with one email address. Perhaps I need to use a different email with the new one?
    Glad to have access to this app.

    You can keep both iPads on the same Apple ID for purchasing apps, music and whatever, and have separate iCloud accounts for each.

    That would allow you to keep sharing all your purchases, while having separate emails, calendars, contact lists, etc. It would also mean that each iPad has it's own 5GB of online backup and storage for data; instead of sharing it.

    When you go into Settings > iCloud and tap the Sign In button you will have the option to create a new account.

    It's asking for an apple ID, so will it be ok to use the same I'd I'm using. I'm thinking yes which will allow us to purchase together but separate the contacts and calendar like you had suggested.

    You'll want to use the same Apple ID for all the iStores when buying apps, music, whatever. If you want separate email, calendars, contacts, and iCloud storage space you'll want a separate iCloud accounts. It is possible to have different iCloud and iTunes accounts on the same iOS device.

    There should be an option to create a new Apple ID when signing into iCloud. Use that to create a new ID for iCloud, and use it only for iCloud. For all other stuff keep using your original Apple ID. They will not affect each other.
