Step 6. It will now ask you to enter server information. Enter "m.google.com" Click Next.

Step 7. The iPad 2 should now ask you if you'd like to keep your existing contacts. If you select yes it may create duplicate contacts. Google says "Unless you want to delete all the existing Contacts and Calendars on your phone, select the Keep on my iPhone option when prompted. This will also allow you to keep syncing with your computer via iTunes".

Done. You should now have the option to sync mail, contacts and calendars with the iPad 2.
