    Yes you will need to SYNC the device to iTunes in order to initialize the iPad.
    Should not take long depending on how much media you want to sync to it.
    If you have no movies, music, apps, photos, then it should take less than 10 minutes.

    All the best:D

    The first time you sync the iPad with iTunes (after registration) does it go right into sync mode or do you get the chance to pick and choose what to sync? I have an iPod Touch that I regularly sync with iTunes (pictures, music, calendar, email, notes). Will iTunes default to what is set up to sync on my iPod Touch?

    You can pick and choose in the same way you can with Your Touch.

    i havent used itunes in a long time (i'm an original Touch user), and i know you can manually individually sync (drag and drop) music and video to it. can you also individually pick and choose which apps to sync over as well (cos you couldnt used to originally)?

    All you have to do IF it does start syncing is press the cancel or "X" in the info window at the top of the iTunes application.
    From there you go to the "Summary" tab and deselct the "Always sync contents when this ipad is connected.
    I think there is another way to do this in the settings section as well.:D

    Also, if you want to prevent auto-syncing; open iTunes' preferences, the Devices tab, and check the box that says "Prevent iPods. . . from syncing automatically"

    From that point on you'll only sync when you click on the sync button, or choose it from a menu.

    I also try to avoid ITunes as much as possible, since that Program often do things u dont want to ist always a risk that some Apps just dissapear for a reason u just dont see in the moment.

    Just keep auto-sync off and nothing will happen when u connect to itunes without doing anything.

    ITunes can be a pain, but still u should do a backup of your device from time to time (right click device name and "save") to not lose anything while doing a step in ITunes where u dont know what will happen.

    I really would never sync, but there iOS-Updates which you need to get, and theres the major problem of all.
