    I'm getting the iPad later this month
    I have UK and US itunes accounts. Is it possible to sync the iPad so that it receives the apps off both accounts?

    It will... But it's a little more complicated to do the updates!

    I also have 2 accounts and it does work...

    Just authorize both accounts on the computer you use with iPad. If the content is on two different computers, you can use HomeShare to quickly copy content to the computer you will use. After that it should be seamless.

    Thanks for the replies. I just got it today (2 week waiting time on apple store but the 3G 32gb iPad was in stock at pc world)

    My sync requirements:

    - syncing my dads photos stored on his osx user account
    - syncing my uk iPhone apps
    - syncing a us iTunes apps account
    - syncing my music

    The trouble I find is when I switch from one user account to another on osx, I get a warning that data already on the iPad will be deleted if from a different iTunes account. Both accounts are authorised on my Mac mini. I'm not sure I know how to authorise multiple accounts on the iPad

    Any ideas?
