Why? Maybe I already have a 3G subscription with my own mobile provider. Maybe I only want to use WiFi/USB.
Maybe I already have about a hundred books (already bought/free) that I want to read on it. Maybe I don't want to use their store anyway.

As for the 3G support - really, I'm very gratefull that they want to solve everything for me but why don't they just give me the device with an empty SIM card slot? I assure you, I can really figure out myself what kind of service I need.
And on the related note - no Web browser in the Android device? So who needs WiFi support then?
Hmm, good question about the WiFi...
