A wifi only pad will work anywhere in the world. When you set it up, to same issues down the road, set it up in the country where you plan to use it most. That will get you to the right I tunes store for your country.
If you get a 3 g pad, you do not need to sign up until you get home, and find a carrier that supports the pad in your country.
