    If I buy the ipad 2 in the us, do I have to activate it there or can I activate it the uk. I know that you have to activate a 3g in America, but what about a wifi only?
    Cheers

    You only activate if you using AT&T. The 3G iPad needs no special activation to use a carrier outside the US

    And of course the wifi only model does not ever need activating anywhere...

    That's a reasonable concern. In some countries the voltage is 220, where others is 110/120. In some countries you have to have a TV and/or DVD player that operates in NTSC, while others run PAL. It would make sense for many to question a possible difference in Wi-Fi signal. That was definately not a stupid question.

    Only if you have the US carrier in UK, I think it might work for 3G. But wifi will work anywhere you want, you just need a wireless connection.

    Indeed, I would have had the same concern in the past.

    Luckily enough, the Internet and WiFi connections are a lot more universal than TV systems and voltage of house electricity :)

    Aren't we, iPad users, lucky people? ;)

    Regarding the voltage,
    The batteries wouldn't change would they. Surely they would just use a different plug

    The charger for the iPad is universal - it will work off all AC outlets anywhere in the world. You only need the physical adaptor to enable the charger to be phyiscally connected to the power outlet.
