Unlocked iPads go on sale in Japan

Back in May of 2014, NTT DoCoMo and Apple worked together to bring the iPad Air to the carrier’s consumers, but it looks like Apple wasn’t done with their tablet plans in the Japanese market.
Apple has confirmed, as seen through a report from 9to5Mac, that they have begun selling unlocked cellular-connected iPads in Japan. Previously, the only cellular option iPads available in the country through Apple retail locations were those SIM-locked to networks such as NTT DoCoMo and SoftBank. For those who have been waiting for an unlocked variant to appear in stores (and be available through their Online store), the wait is apparently over.

With the unlocked iPad, a user will be able to use their cellular tablet with any carrier they desire, and will also let owners use other networks while they travel internationally. Customers will be able to find both the iPad Air and iPad mini models with unlocked cellular-connectivity.
