    My understanding is that if I go buy a brand new 4 or 3gs from Apple right now, they will come with iOS4.1 which cannot be hactivated or unlocked on either device, due to the new baseband. Is that correct?

    if you buy in the united states, yes.

    Word is that an unlock is coming out right after apple releases 4.2

    It wouldn't make sense to release the unlock right now, because then apple would just patch it when they release 4.2 in november.

    So, very soon it will be unlockable. You might want to get one with 4.1 so you can save it's shsh's to aid in preserving baseband in the future.

    Yes, you will have to wait a month or 2 hopefully for the new unlock to be released.
