    I am completely new to any product of apple so i am a bit afraid in buying my first ipad more so coz as of now no jailbreak is available.. here are a few questions n i will be very thankfull to anybody who answers them!

    the warranty we get is it international one? that is if i buy from USA wil it be valid in INDIA??

    can it open PDF (as large as upto 200mb size), CHM, DOC, TXT, excel sheet, power point, epub? if not then wat softwares will be needed to open them?

    can it edit (by editing i mean underlining text or highlighting text or making new bookmarks) any of the above formats specially CHM, PDF & Epub?

    can it open .mkv and .avi format video?? if not then what software will be needed?

    can its touchscreen be operated with a stylus or any other inanimate object?

    i think ibooks can open epub format files.. then which software can be used to convert other files to epub format? can u suggest a good converter?

    I hope I can answer some of your questions. Yes - the iPad has an international warranty and an iPad purchased in the USA will have a valid warranty in India.

    For word processing etc.....


    One of our members carried out a survey of Office apps for his company; you can see his conclusions in this thread...

    The Apple iWorks Office suite for the iPad has a set of useful Help pages that show their capabilities here...

    Pages is Word compatible and can read .doc and .docx files and save in .doc and .pdf

    Keynote is PowerPoint compatible and can read .ppt and .pptx files and save in .ppt and .pdf

    Numbers is Excel compatible and can read .xls and .xlsx files and save in .xls and .pdf

    For reading large PDF documents, GoodReader....



    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac.

    I hope other Members will be able to answer some of your other questions.
