    Hey there

    I'm currently on the road with only my iPad2 and I was curious if its possible to install iOS5 directly or do you still need to download it and install it through iTunes/ Mac?

    Thanks

    You necessarily need a computer with iTunes in order to install iOS 5. Once you've done that, updates can be installed over the air.

    If you do not have a computer, the Apple Store will help you out

    If you have absolutely no data you need to save on your iPad running iOS 4.x, you could do what @thewitt suggests and go by an Apple store.

    If you need to back up your data before upgrading, wait until you can hook up to your Mac via iTunes.
