It strikes me as weird that if they are touting this as a business device, and businessmen go abroad to the US from the UK all the time, why would they lock it to a region? It just doesn't make sense.
I refuse to give up hope though. I really want this device. I sent a message to Samsung on Twitter; let's see if they respond.
Yeah, that does seem like a contradiction of their target audience. I only buy unlocked devices as well, can't stand being locked down. I wonder what brainiac came up with that bright idea
