eBook in iPad

Recently, iPad should be the hottest news in Technology world. I like it very much but unfortunately, Hong Kong is in the selling list of iPad.
One of the features that I would like to buy iPad is that it is a eBook ! Now, I found some good news from Gizmodo that I can convert my own pdf into the eBook format(iPad only supports epub right now) but dragging into iTunes. The eBook will be recognized for syncing.

All you have to do is to run Calibre and convert your files into ePub.

I will try to output in iPad from my friend and let you know later ........
