I just got one in Dixons in Heathrow airport.
The power plug has a US-style two square prongs, as well as a compact
US-to-UK physical adaptor (with plastic "ground" pin) which clips on
So I'd guess that the US version won't include that extra bit, but you
should be able to use any (less tidy) US/UK adaptor to power it up. Or
maybe a similar part can be got separately.
Obviously, someone who has actually bought the thing you're looking at
will be able to give a proper answer.
(The AC converter can take 110-240V, 50-60 Hz input, so it's only the
physical adaptor you need.)
