    At the moment, two of us are sharing an iPad. Is it possible to have something similar to two identities as on a computer? If not, what is an alternative - apart from buying another iPad!

    At the moment you can't have 2 separate users or logins. This would be an awesome future development I think.

    The only solution (other than the second iPad) is to avoid using the built in apps for anything you don't' want to share. Instead use webmail and service through Safari (remembering to sign out when done). There are also a few apps in the store that do allow multiple user profiles and log ins.

    It is inconvenient and takes research, but not completely undoable.
