I'm just wondering, what is the process once I buy an iPad (next week in the US). Does it need to be synced to iTunes and activated (like an iPhone) before it can be used? or can I use it straight out of the box? I only ask because I want to be able to use it whilst I am out in the US, but I won't have anything with iTunes on if it needs that. I would also like to be able to purchase some apps on it whilst I am there too, and use them. Thanks. And sorry if it sounds like a dumb question. I just want to be prepared for when I pick it up. Kevin.
