Hi Pedro,

short answer: yes you can use Pandas without problems

large answer: Pandas can be simply installed using pip from osgeo4w
shell (OSGeo4W python-pandas package is broken and probably not
maintained because the simply workaround using pip), and pip now is
already installed in OSGeo4W.
Beaware that pandas will be installed in dist_packages on the of you
osgeo installation. No way (for now) to use Pandas installed with
Anaconda because is is using a different python interpreter that that
used by osgeo4w. Btw you can link the two world using wrapping scripts
and setting pythonhome env var changing the running context.

I Strongly suggest to:

1) install pandas using pip
2) use IPython Console qgis plugin by Alessandro Pasotti where you can
have also inline graphics and qgis var instances introspection.

remember only that the IPython kernel of the IPython Console can't be
connected from external clients due to intrinsic embedding limitation.
