    I come from China, you know all of the ipads are made in China, I through one of my friend got a ipad just from a company directly, but!! The ipad just has hardware testing mode system, that means there is no Os system(or others) in it, now I just can use the iPad to test the ipad hardware, such as sound, screen, wifi... so now the question is how can I install a system in it, so that I can play it.. thanks alot..

    I don't have an iPad but on the iPod touch you must plug it into iTunes before you can use it. If that doesn't work you can install the OS by restoring. So plug it into iTunes and click restore.

    There's actually a lot of different nationalities on this forum. I'm American though. I thought that every letter was abbreviated for something. You're English is great though. I wouldn't have guess it wasn't your first language unless you told me.

    But anyway I presume the iPad works now?

    Haha, it's just an English-speaking forum. There are other sections for different languages, but it's mainly English. And I knew what 'lad' was, I just wasn't 100% sure what the 'ta' meant. So I just guessed 'thanks a lot'.
