Can you set up an iPad via wifi?

I'm sending my iPad 2 to a friend stuck in hospital for an indefinite stay. He has wifi, but no laptop.
It is possible to set up an iPad (including registering an account at Apple...he's a PC person, not Apple) entirely via wifi these days, or do you still need to dock with a computer/iTunes the first time?
If the latter, I guess I won't erase anything; I'll keep the iPad on my account, so the apps remain for his use.
Finally, can anyone suggest a book to send along that explains the ins/outs? He's a bit of a Luddite. Nothing big and super complete; just an easy/simply guide (the sort you'd get for an older person)?
