You iPad is not carrier locked like iPhones are.  You can purchase a prepaid SIM card there in Europe to use in your iPad.  Plus its cheaper to use a prepaid card in the iPad when traveling internationally than pay ATT's International Data plan.

So they sell prepaid micro sims?

Going to Austria in July, that would be awesome if I could do the same thing.

Just take a microSIM card cutter with you.  Then if you need to can use a regular SIM and use the cutter to make it fit your iPad.

I went to The Official apple store in Austria where the sales people were kind enough to give me a free A1 card for 1GB. Stuck it in and am still using the freebie.
