    An easy question for those with an iPad, but being that I have not pulled the trigger yet, I'm a bit ignorant. Can one load music from an iPad to an iPhone and vice versa without docking either to a computer first? I'm not even sure if there is a male/mail 56 pin connector available for this. Or would the iPad act as a computer and require the music content first for sync to work?

    Currently, there is no way to do this. You have to sync both the iPad and the iPhone to a computer but not with each other. We'll see what happens when ios4 is released for the iPad, but Im guessing that functionality is some ways off.

    Unfortunately, no, not at the moment. You'll have to sync your iPad to iTunes on your computer in order to get the same music/apps/etc.

    I wish you could. I gave my iTouch away and many times wish to sync directly with iPad when I happen to be around it... eh I'll spare the details but in GIST I could use it.

    You can indeed. But ONLY images/videos from your camera roll or photos section.

    Thanks. That's unfortunate. A lot of potential for linking devices. Thanks though!

    I am afraid that the answer is "that will never happen"

    Remember that apple does not even allow you to connect your idevice to a computer and download the music stored in the device to your computer (the opposite direction is of course possible). There are many applications that do so, but that option will not be available through itunes.

    Of course, you could make it happen by make a male-male apple cable, jailbreaking both devices....aaaand making a custom app that does the file swapping.

    But the total amount of work needed when there is a simple "connect to the computer" alternative makes it inviable
