You need to check if the warranty is valid worldwide (I have no clue).

There are configuration settings that identify a specific variant and 
affect some functionality: for example the italian regulation forbids 
transmitting on the FM band and therefore the transmitter is disabled.

I do not know if this is the only case, but you might want to get an 
official statement through the Nokia customer support, so that you can 
use it later on, in case you find some problematic feature.
