    Have a look in iTunes on the iPad, there should be a purchased tab. If they are all showing in there then whatever happens you can always download again for free from that page (even if they are paid apps) no matter what happens.

    You can also right click on the iPad in iTunes and choose Transfer Purchases. That should copy all the apps to iTunes. Might take a while, considering how many apps you are talking about.

    That many apps is also gong to really slow down the upgrade process, so unless he is actively using them you may want to consider thinning the numbers a bit (a lot) before upgrading. You can always download them again, as Gabriel said.

    It would be a good idea to go through this thread be fore upgrading, as well.
