transfer from Palm to iPad 1
Is it possible to transfer my contacts list and notes (2 separate area ) from my Palm Pilot desk top to my iPad 1?

Welcome to TIMO! To my knowledge there's no easy way of doing it. You'll need to use a program both devices have in common such as Google or a program on your computer which will copy the data to an acceptable format so you can mirror/send it to the iPad.
I'm half certain outlook and exchange will allow you to do this with the Palm software. You'll essentially be exporting the contact data and then importing them to your iPad with software typically used for importing contacts via exchange or outlook.
All of it looks kinda hectic and I'm afraid I've never done it (maybe someone else on the forum knows better but my Google search says it's a pain).
One thread I found on Apple's forum is this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0 -- maybe it'll help?“Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game because they almost always turn out to be—or to be indistinguishable from—self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time.” ― Cryptonomicon
