    You can download directly to the iPad, no need for a PC.

    I just emailed, from my desktop a 19mb PDF file. When I tried to open the attachment on the iPad it says "to large to open.". Does anyone know if there is a way to open the document?
    Thanks

    iTunes is used to activate the iPad, just like the iPhone and iPod Touch. There is no real 'why'; that's just how Apple wants it and we have no choice but to oblige... or we wait until the next jailbreak comes out :D

    Stevenflaugher, the thing about the iPad is that the only way to get it up and running is to connect it to a computer with iTunes on it. It syncs and registers you as an iTunes user which gets your iPad up and running. So you do need a computer to get started. But , the friendly folks at the Apple store can connect it to one of their computers and have it up and running there. You just need to register later.

    ipad will not replace a computer

    You want to replace a computer by a iPad, this will not work ... iPad can do many thing like a computer but not replace it and it's not made for that

    iPad is more for consult that produce .... of course he have wonderful capacity but yet not the capacity to replace a computer ( i believe Apple will love to propose a tablet can fully replace a computer but this will not arrive with the iPad …..

    ONE small example : a colleague want to give you a file in you can’t give him USB dongle and charge it in you’re iPad even you have 3G suppose he as a netbook and no wifi available he can’t even send you by email

    example like this i can give you some hundred

    The best thing to do is go to a friend or family member and do the initial set up on itunes on their computer ie registration etc. After that you can access itunes direct It is a good idea once a month or earlier to go back and connect again so that the ipad is backed up if that makes sense

    Several third party Apps can do it. Goodreader is I believe the best one and better still they have an ipad version
    goodiware.com :: products or search for goodreader in Apps itunes

    This is from the itunes store description
    Congratulations! You've found the one and only Good Reader app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad! If you need to read huge PDF, or TXT files, you've come to the right place. Faithful users of GoodReader have reported flawless performance with files over 1 gig in size; but that's only one of the many features that makes GoodReader the best app of its kind.

    Cheers colin down under
