Does the iPad support or read iCalendar / Outlook Meeting Invitations / .ics files?

No. Apple does not have this file format listed as a Mail-supported attachment type on the iPad. Unfortunately this means that double-clicking on the file won't open the calendar invitation.

Users will have to open the .ics attachment using an email client on their Mac or PC, then sync the appointment details to the iPad using iTunes.
