I called AppleCare support TODAY & they confirmed it is UNLOCKED!!
I guess they now have the updated info!!
So, all you need to do is pop a micro-sim card from a UK carrier for iPAD & it'll turn into a UK iPAD (of whatever country you're in). Great news but Steve Jobs explicitly stated this at his keynote on 27th June!
It wouldn't make any sense to lock it given all the unlock programs out there anyway!!
