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!

You guys should try to root. The White version is locked.

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