What is the purpose of the holes on the left side of the device

I just noticed two holes on the left side of my new K3. So there is nothing at the top, volume, on/off, microphone, headphone, and microusb on the bottom, nothing on the right. On the left there are two little slits that look about the size of a microsd card, but I know that there is no way to add memory to this thing. I can't figure out what there are and there doesn't seem to be a description in the manual. Does anybody know?

Some cases have a locking mechanism that utilizes those holes.

They're used to attach the Amazon Kindle 3 covers. The power connection for the cover with light is also via a hole. The bottom hole has a 1.8V TTL serial console connection as well.
