Default "Unlocked" icon on boot screen?

I just picked up a Tab 10.1 from Best Buy, and I noticed that there is a large "unlocked" icon at the bottom of the first boot screen.

What does this mean? Is the bootloader somehow unlocked already?

wow nice.

do you have access to flash in recovery? do you have bootloader access (that you can interact with)? do you have odin access (that you can interact with)?

Same here on my grey 32GB but I can't get into bootloader. That unlocked padlock was the indicator on my Nexus S that the bootloader was unlocked so I'm hopeful that means it it on this too!
OnePlus One..:..64GB Sandstone Black rooted
Nexus 5..:..32GB rooted
Nexus 7 LTE(2013)..:..32GB rooted

Wouldnt that be hilarious if the best buy exclusive white version was locked, and the grey one isnt.

I hope not, I wanted to get the white.
dsh apparently has the white version, so I'm still hopeful.

Rooting your Nexus S on Linux? This can help!
