You can get SIM unlocked Nokia devices here: http://www.nokia.co.jp/phones/index.shtml (or http://www.au.kddi.com/english/global/ge/purchase/index.html for shop info in English)
If you buy a SIM unlocked device overseas, it's hard to set up the data service here. (Impossible for flat rate at the moment ???)
I heard a rumor DoCoMo is going to open up their flat rate data plan in August. Anyone know anything more about this?
I also heard rumors that HTC is going to start selling unlocked devices here at some point.

its pretty hard to buy a sim-unlocked GSM in japan - just in case you want
to go local for a long trip.
