There are interesting differences between USA and Europe you just stumbled upon.
In USA, the warranty hardly ever exceeds one year. It might also include interesting conditions making you practically excluded from using it. For example, have you calculated how much shipping of defective device overseas will cost you if you have to pay it by yourself?
In USA, cell phones are usually locked to carriers. Wireless carriers are not obligated to sell unlocked devices. There are businesses that could unlock device for you but it will cost you extra and it is on your own risk. Don't be surprised if cell phone vendor decides that unlocking device voids your warranty.
Finally, are you sure you are going to save money on buying device from the USA?
For example, 8820 from AT&T goes for $500 without contract.
Add all this together and you may find that you may have to pay rather large sum of Euros for a honest deal. You might get much more cheaper offer but you know what they say about the offer that is too good to be true.
Your best bet is to buy local.
